This exquisite Oolong tea comes from the Song Meng Garden in the Anhui province of eastern China. This region, with its temperate climate and rich soil, is known for its exceptional teas. Our Da Hong Pao tea has large black leaves with a slightly earthy aroma. When brewed, the tea emits a smoky, woodsy aroma in an ecru colored cup, with a taste of roasted nuts, slight smoke and a wonderful toastiness. Multiple infusions are possible.
Specially picked from selected high altitude sections, this delicious organic oolong is a lightly rolled, semi fermented, hand sorted whole leaf tea. The dark brown, twisted, tippy leaves brew into a pale amber cup with a sweet, mellow taste and a delicate fruity aroma and flavor.
