The handcrafted leaves unfurl after submersion, a delight to watch. This oolong is a summer flush harvest, plucked when the leaves are dark green. Processing begins with rolling and shaping, which gently bruises the leaves and darkens the color and indicates that its oxidation (60%) is complete. Its deep color reveals a surprisingly golden cup, with a rich-tasting amber cup and notes of toasted nuts, malt and apricots.
A cleansing and refreshing tea, lovely for a afternoon pick me up.
What sets Oolong apart from the blacks or whites or greens is the single step of oxidation. Oolongs fit between black and green teas by being partially oxidized.
