This All About Oolong Tea Gift Box contains the following oolong teas:
Assam Latumoni Bohagi Oolong is an experimental First Flush oolong made completely by hand at a small family-run tea garden. It undergoes light roasting to achieve a complex flavour. The balanced character has mineral, floral and baked wheat notes with a light citrus aftertaste.
Dan Cong Mi Lan Xiang is a complex Phoenix Mountain oolong from Guangdong that is known for a honey orchid aroma and taste. The dark leaves produce a sweet, fruity liquor with notes of wild honey, exotic flowers and a lasting lightly roasted, mineral aftertaste.
Gao Shan Qing Xin Oolong is a beautifully floral high mountain Green Heart Oolong from Meishan, grown next to the famous Alishan National Scenic Area. Large, tightly rolled leaves produce an aromatic liquor with a bright floral character and sweet, creamy 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.
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.
Santikhiri Green Heart Oolong is a lightly oxidised oolong from the highlands of Doi Mae Salong in northern Thailand. It produces a bright gold-green liquor with a light vegetal and floral aroma. The refreshing flavour has a verdant, floral profile with a lightly astringent aftertaste.
Tie Guan Yin Iron Goddess of Mercy is a renowned light oolong tea that originates from Anxi County in Fujian Province of China. The tightly rolled leaves are light green and have a gentle floral scent. The pale gold liquor has a light flavour with little aftertaste. There are floral buttery notes of green vegetables with a hint of sweet peppers.
Vintage Oolong is our Tea Master’s family reserve oolong that has been expertly aged since 2001. It produces an amber liquor with a fruity and leathery aroma. The smooth fruity profile has complex flavours of tart fruits, tobacco and wood with a wine-like note.
