The Mingjian area is a great spot for finding classically beautiful teas. This Jade Oolong Cultivar is a perfect example of that. Lighter oxidized, the upfront fresh vegetal note smoothly transitions to a thick, creamy mouthfeel before finishing up with a long-lingering floral aftertaste.
Fresh, affordable and certified organic, this one is a great daily drinker for those who like a lighter, more floral oolong in their cup.
