Makes about 40 cups of tea. There are roughly 30 grams per ounce. Each 4-ounce package makes about 8-10 gallons of tea.This tea should be brewed around 90°C to 100°C (194°F to 212°F). We recommend a steeping time of 1-5 minutes.

Oolong tea is an interesting category of Chinese tea. It is not a Green (unfermented) nor a Black (fermented) tea. Nor is it simply half fermented and half unfermented tea. It is something in-between. To the western mind (especially those scientific types) something is something or it isn't. Everything as yes or no. You either have a disease or you do not have a disease. Ah, but the Chinese Taoists (earliest herbalists and tea cultivators) saw things in another dimension. As a third possibility. Something akin to fuzzy logic. The possibility of something else. Where Aristotle saw things only in Black or White (has to be one or the other) Traditional Chinese Medicne defined things in color. Where Green Tea is cooling and Black Tea warming; oolong is neutral. One's tea, as in ones food (and medicine) could fit not only the external environment (summer, winter, autumn) but the individual as well.

This is a favorite for kombucha brewing. It is very economical (less than 80 cents per gallon size brew) and delivers a sparkling clean apple cider sensation. It tends to produce a more balanced blend of acids than either a black tea or a green tea. We also offer our own blend of organic black and green teas, which for kombucha brewing produces a medicinally balanced blend of health and taste.

Many folks find combining teas into their own blends as well as adding pieces of fresh or dried fruit and herbs; Hawthorne, Elderberries, Wolfberries, Ginseng, to name just a few. We recommend Harald Tietze book (herbalist, kombucha enthusiasts) as he offers hundreds of wonderful flavorful and healthy combinations.

Green teas tend to produce bitter brews if steeped over 5 minutes. Our premium grade White Tea, (White Teas are in the category of Green Tea) do not become bitter and may be steeped 15 minutes or more similar to Black Teas. Our Pu-erh Teas (a category of Black Tea) may be steeped until the cows come home and rarely loose their natural sweetness - but they do become very strong! Additional information on package and accompanying booklet.

A home decaffeinate water-process: Immerse the tea in one cup of boiling water. Wait 30 seconds and remove the tea. Discard that water. Now use the tea in your regular water. 80% of caffeine is naturally extracted in hot water within the first 30 seconds. It is debated the role or benefit that caffeine plays in our lives as well as that in the life of the kombucha. Most kombucha brewers believe that some caffeine is necessary for kombucha brewing. True, depending upon the balance of the ferment as well as the time fermenting some - of the caffeine is reduced.
