This tea lives in two worlds. Its short oxidation period means that it retains some green tea flavor, but it has a Taiwan oolong's solid, appealing lilac aroma.
Insider Tip: This is among our least oxidized oolongs, so if you enjoy this one, try our Ti Kuan Yin or Tung Ting. Want something super different? Try our Dark Goddess Oolong.
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 from Nantou Taiwan
