  1. Nice to learn about this tea, guys. Thanks!

    You spoke about brewing temperatures in the video — what temp do you use for Bai Hao and gaoshan oolongs?

    I’m looking forward to your “lab” videos.

    • Hi Peter, I use boiling for gaoshan. Good gaoshan should hold up well and it brings out stronger characteristics (body, flavor, mouthfeel). Oriental Beauty, I’ll use somewhere between boiling and green tea temperatures, lower if I want it to be very sweet.

      Thanks for the feedback on the labs. We’ve filmed a bunch more normal episodes, but we’ll try to get some in there soon!
