The champagne of green teas, producing a cup that is sweeter and more fragrant. The best of both worlds, part steamed part fermented in production; Oolong captures the freshness of unfermented green tea and the rich complexity of black teas.
Taiwan is renowned for its semi-fermented teas: Oolongs and even more lightly fermented Pouchongs ('green Oolongs'). Formosa (name given by Portuguese explorers to the island meaning 'beautiful') Pouchong, is slightly less oxidized than other oolongs and has the lightness and freshness of an unfermented green tea but is sweeter and more fragrant.
"A proper tea is much nicer than a Very Nearly Tea, which is one you forget about afterwards"A.A. Milne
A very special tea from probably one of the most beatiful tea gardens up high in the Nepalese Himalayas. This Darjeeling styled rich oolong is made entirely by hand from only the tenderest autumnal leaves, producing long, twisted dark brown spicy fragrant leaves with golden tips. A must have for any tea connoisseur!
"There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea."Bernard-Paul Heroux More details
