From T2

Specifically selected, single-trunk trees in the Phoenix mountains produce this highly prized and carefully cultivated tea. A light, clear infusion with a yellow tint has a wonderfully strong natural aroma with fruity and floral overtones that include succulent peach and passionfruit. A deep and lingering, well-balanced spectrum of fruity flavours has a hint of charcoal on the clean, fresh and highly refreshing finish. Grand China Oolong has many similarities to sauvignon blanc in flavour and finish, making it a crisp, refined and deliciously invigorating drop.

1 teaspoon per 200mls. brew 3-5 minutes in water at 80 degrees Celsius. For the gong-fu method, use 2 heaped teaspoons per small pot and pour immediately.

A complex tea that is best enjoyed on its own to savour, or with a little something light and sweet to join. Its lively fruit and floral characteristics can accompany a meal with a little Asian spice, or a delicate seafood dish.

Origin: Phoenix Mountains, Guangdong Province, China.

Aroma: Big hit of wood, smoke and pine needles. Bold but complex, and ever so slightly acrid. Hints of ginger and tropical fruit. Second steeping is still full of flavour.

Palate: Pine cones and forrest floor. There is a certain ‘dankness’ to this tea which is earthy and alluring. Light smoke and burnt sugar are in there. This tea is somehow deep yet light without being overpowering. Second steeping is just as good. All in all, quite delicious.

Overall: A great dark oolong – a variety that is really growing on me lately. I’ll be back for more!
