Great Red Robe Time-Lapse Infusion

This is Great Red Robe Oolong from Tea So Divine (not to be confused with Red Rose from your local grocery store). This time lapse version of an infusion is interesting to observe; it tells us about colour saturation, leaf movement, and infusion release. This actually isn’t a great example because I should have chosen more leaves from the packaging and brewed the tea inside at room temperature, whereas I brewed it outside because the lighting was better and it was hovering around 5 degrees Celsius.

In any case, this tea is very bold, smooth, and lightly fruity. This tea is grown on WuYi mountain in China and brews a beautiful red-amber shade. It re-infuses more times than any Oolong I’ve ever worked with. It’s so soothing and well-balanced in flavour (at a high temperature), it relaxes the body and puts you right to sleep at night.

This is now one of my favourite Teas, I will be buying this again in the future.

To observe the time-lapse better, I suggest manually moving through the slideshow by clicking the “arrow” key at a faster rate than the slideshow itself. The arrow key appears when you hover your mouse over the bottom of the slideshow.
