From Zhi Tea

This is a Grade AA tea from May, 2000, stored in a vacuum seal. We have procured this Aged Oolong from a small artisan farm in Taiwan. It has been refired or roasted every year to eighteen months to retain and enhance its incredible qualities. It was grown at 1,800 feet elevation from a Large Leaf varietal, in Natou, Taiwan.

We chose this tea for its wonderful roasted flavor, of course, but more than that it has a genuine silky sweetness and an incredible warm body and fragrance. Multiple steeping reveal notes of honeysuckle, pine needle, and moist bark.

One of our Artisan Reserve organic oolong teas, a line of small batch handmade teas from a craft handed down over generations. Hand selected for having all the hallmark qualities of the highest grades with notable personality accents.
