Delicate 'semi-fermented' Oolong is halfway between a black and green tea. Its floral, lingering sweetness comes from a process of bruising, shaking and rolling the leaves which takes great skill to perfect. A truly exotic taste that is subtle, mild and aromatic, perfect for late afternoon or evening.
I have been looking for the perfect oolong teaa bag since another company discontinued theirs due to availability problems. I'm so glad to again find a nice everyday oolong with that lovely intoxicating aroma of just baled hay with a hint of fresh pipe tobacco as it brews. I'm not as keen on the more expensive and more delicate "better quality" leaf oolongs I've tried. Give me this dark coloured brew with it's smooth, subtle yet crisp autumnal flavours and I'm in tea paradise for as long as my mug lasts. Excellent value too.
