This All About Oolong Tea Gift Box contains the following oolong teas:
Huang Jin Gui Golden Osmanthus Oolong is a floral oolong from the famous tea growing area of Anxi County, Fujian Province. Rolled leaves produce a yellow coloured liquor with a floral osmanthus aroma. The refreshing character has clean, verdant and floral notes that are sweet and buttery.
Wen Shan Bao Zhong is an award-winning delightful floral green oolong (pouchong) from Taiwan. Large twisted leaves produce a light liquor with a floral aroma. Similar to a mellow green tea but without any harshness, the taste is smooth with creamy and floral notes.
Roasted Zhang Ping Shui Xian is an unusual and rare oolong from China that comes pressed into a square-shaped cake. The light mouth-watering liquor of this tea has a smooth, roasted and mineral flavour with creamy, floral and nutty notes.
Gui Fei Oolong is an award-winning rare high mountain oolong from Taiwan. The leaves of this ‘beauty tea’ are nibbled by little green leaf hoppers. This results in a supremely unique wild honey flavour, with sweet, floral and woody notes.
Dan Cong Mi Lan Xiang from Guangdong Province in China is known for the honey orchid aroma and taste. The dark leaves produce a golden liquor that is light, sweet and fruity with notes of wild honey and exotic flowers.
Moc Chau Red Buffalo Oolong is a complex oolong from Vietnam that undergoes a higher degree of oxidation. It results in a tea that has a malty black tea character while retaining lighter floral attributes. The taste is warming and smooth with fruity notes of sweet raisins and wild honey.
