Roughly translated as Water Sprite, this long leaf beauty comes to us from the famous Fujian province of China. The liquor is a beautiful light amber in the cup. This tea is fired 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 oxidize, 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 produce 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.
