How to make delicious Oolong Tea

Oolong Tea

Oolong tea is a traditional Chinese tea that falls between green and black tea in terms of oxidation. It is said to help boost metabolism and aid in digestion.



1 tablespoon oolong tea leaves or 1 oolong tea bag

1 cup water (8 ounces)

Optional: a dash of cinnamon or ginger for added flavor


Bring water to a boil and then let it cool for a minute or two until it reaches around 180-190°F (82-88°C).

Place the oolong tea leaves or tea bag in your teapot or cup.

Pour the hot water over the tea leaves or tea bag.

Allow the tea to steep for 3-5 minutes, adjusting the steeping time based on your taste preferences. Longer steeping may result in a stronger flavor.

Remove the tea leaves or tea bag from the cup or teapot.

For added flavor, you can sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon or grate some fresh ginger into the tea.
