Description

Our 2019 Oolong Black is a tea that is very hard to put into a category somewhere between traditional Oolong and Black Tea.

It is technically a Dianhong, an Yunnan black tea, as it is made of hand selected first flush, pre-Qingming festival leaves of old Yunnan tea trees and then fully oxidized. But otherwise it has gone through the full, complicated processing path of a handmade traditional Taiwanese style oolong, and that’s where our producer learned his craft from some of the best oolong producers around.

This processing gives it a taste much more refined than most dianhong teas, with a wide array of subtle floral notes, a light sweetness and a distinct but not overpowering bottom note of raw cocoa. Not what we would expect from an Yunnan black tea!

A tea for black tea lovers who think they tried everything, for oolong lovers looking for a black tea or for anyone else who wants to try a very interesting new creation.
