f I had to choose between dark oolong or green oolong, for me it would be green every time. I find them characterful and unique, with more variation in flavour than I’ve typically found (at least so far…) among their roasted counterparts. And that’s coming from a habitual black tea drinker.

Himalayan Shangri-la is a Nepalese Oolong from 2015. It’s a first flush, or spring, oolong comprising highly graded leaves taken from a single estate.

The leaf here is pretty impressive – they’re long and twisty, with a high predominance of downy buds, and vary from a dark khaki to the palest green-silver. The scent is lightly vegetal and just a touch floral, in the way of orchids.

Another great example of a well made tea that neither blows you away or makes you shrug, but the complexity and nuances of flavors and perfume provide a very pleasing tasting experience. Looked on the website to see how much it’s going for and lo and behold, it’s not available.

Thanks, Teabox also has quite the assortment, too much tea too little time, but I’ll try
