“The tea in raw form consists of small Oolong balls that are very dark brown/black in colour. They do look mature by the dark appearance alone but the rich toasted floral scent would have given it...” Read full tasting note

Description

This tea is from the spectacular province of Fujian on the Southeast coast of China famed for its Oolong teas this Oolong is unlike any we had tried before. It is closer to a black tea than most Oolongs but still brews an attractive amber colour.

The leaves used are from a later harvest than our Fujian Oolong, they are sun dried but are then withered for longer like with a black tea giving this tea its dark appearance and smoky taste.

If you allow the flavour to develop you will experience hints of cinnamon, flowers and red wine.
