Strong Fire Oolong
In making Strong Fire only the mature, hardy leaves are plucked. They are then ‘withered’ in the sun for a few hours to reduce moisture. Once suitable suppleness is achieved in the leaves, traditional rolling techniques ( at least 13 different motions) are applied in conjunction with light roasting to achieve the optimum shape and flavor. A final ‘high roast’ is given to complete the processing.
Heavy texture, bitter-sweet chocolate taste. Toasty aroma.
