A nice basic Oolong. Nutty with subtle vegetal notes.
Is your version a heavily fermented or a lightly fermented oolong?
Hey Jillian! Tea actually isn’t normally fermented, the only fermented teas are Pu-erhs. Most teas are oxidized. Our Formosa Oolong is oxidized approximately 45%-60%, a bit more than most of our other brown oolongs. If it’s too oxidized for you I’d recommend checking out our Da Hong Pao or fruitier Fenghuang Shuixian!
Yeah, oxidized was what I meant to say, sorry.
I’m not very familiar with the different types of oolongs so lately I’ve been experimenting with trying different types. This was one of the ones I’ve been eyeing actually – maybe on my next H&S order. ;)
