A bright green addictive oolong

This tea offers hints of macadamia and persimmon with a more rounded finish that reminds you of a number of naturally sweetened dried fruits. This Oolong is typically made by picking the lower leaves off the stem, using 4 leaves and one bud. Higher water content means the withering time is extended and the firing process is used multiple times giving the tea these rich notes Lighter, fragrant oolong tea clusters are rolled over a 5-step process repeated up to 20 times over 2 days.Β 

Typically these light styles of Oolongs reign from Anxi county in Fujian. As part of our partnership with The Hutong running student tea education programs in Southern China, we continue to seek out some of the most notable Oolongs from around the country. We cupped and sampled so many Oolongs over the last 7 years in Fujian. The more we cupped, the more we acquired a taste for the more interesting Oolong notes discovered in these 'out-of-the-way' hilly retreats nestled up in the mountains, hidden away valleys largely occupied by the Hakka. So enjoying our light Oolong tea is like taking a trip with us into these hidden mountain-top tea farms, settled by the Hakka around the incredible Tulou - or earthen walled fortresses - the homes of the great "Guest Peoples" of China.
