Brew
Preparing the perfect cup of tea is a process to be savored. Watch how the traditional elements harmoniously come together to make the perfect cup and enjoy the liberation of pure tea goodness.

This is what we call the Mighty Leaf signature multi-sensory ("sensory melange") tea experience. Come share with us and learn how to get infused.

Water
The quality of tea is affected by the quality of water used to prepare it. Using filtered or bottled water is best. If possible, avoid brewing tea with tap, distilled or mineral water. Never over-boil water, as it results in flat-tasting tea.

Fire
1) Heat filtered or bottled water to 185-205F, less than boiling. 2) While the water is heating pour hot water into your teapot and cups, let sit and then drain completely. A warm teapot will maintain the requisite temperature for superior tasting tea.

Whole Leaf Tea
Prepare Mighty Leaf teas using a teapot, paper tea sachet, infuser or traditional brewing methods. Use one rounded tablespoon of loose oolong tea per 12 ounces or cup of water.

Infusion Time
Pour boiling water over tea leaves. Keep teapot covered to retain heat. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 3 - 5 minutes.

Savor the Leaf
Sip your cup and rediscover the pleasure of the way tea was naturally meant to be. This is the magic of Mighty Leaf.

Health Benefits
Like black and green teas, oolong contains an abundant source of natural plant-derived antioxidant compounds called polyphenols. Included within the broad antioxidant polyphenol class are flavonoids and catechins. A kind of flavonoid, catechins are found in tea leaves and may provide protective antioxidant action against harmful free radicals.

Research shows that these free radicals cause heart disease, some kinds of cancer and increase the risk of strokes. Drinking oolong tea with its high antioxidant levels help protect the body by combating dangerous free radical activity. In addition, oolong tea provides a source of nutrients including magnesium, Manganese, potassium, calcium, the vitamins C and K and the amino acid theanine, all in trace amounts.

Use
Oolongs like Ti Kuan Yin are good self-drinking teas - take time to comtemplate and appreciate the complex depth of aroma and layers of flavor. Try infusing multiple times and note how the flavor develops. However, oolongs are also versatile teas traditionally drunk with food. Ti Kuan Yin pairs well with a wide array of foods, including meat, seafood and chocolate.
