YMY 1690 China Oolong
One of the world’s great teas, oolong is semi-oxidized with qualities of black and green teas. Distinctive fruity taste and golden color. In 1690, Japan was ruled by the Tokugawa Shogunate, the Manchus had repelled the Mongols, Louis XIV ruled in splendor from his new palace in Versailles, Czar Peter had just attained the throne and Johann Sebastian Bach was five years old. And that same year in Japan, the Yamamoto family began producing premium teas, a tradition that continues to this day. More than three centuries of experience go into the selection and processing of Yamamotoyama Teas, among the finest in the world.
