This oolong from Taiwan has a complex array of flavors through each infusion. It is a great example of the roasting skills shown by the teamaker. Careful oxidation is evident in the infused leaf.
Insider Tip: This is best enjoyed GongFu Style, or served in a Gaiwan.
Caffeine Level: Medium.
Oolong teas are commonly known as partially oxidized because the oxidation allowed in processing varies between that of a green tea and that of a black. Varying between 30-70% oxidation, oolongs are produced into two main varieties: a darker, open-leafed style (such as our Dark Goddess), and a greener, rolled-ball style (such as our Jade Oolong). Darker oolongs tend to have a soft, fruity character with undertones of stone fruit. Greener oolongs offer a more green infusion with a more floral character.
Ingredients: Oolong tea.
