Roughly translated as Narcissus or Water Sprite, this longleaf beauty comes to us from the famous Fujian province of China. The liquor is beautiful light amber in the cup. This tea is oxidized a bit more than others and imparts a slight roast along with a lingering sweetness. A very good value, this tea complements Asian foods quite nicely.
Insider Tip: If you were ever looking for that 'black tea' you had at with your meal at an Asian restaurant, chances are it was this! Give it a try and see what you think.
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.
