Red Oolong 

 

A heavily oxidized tea from Taidong, this Red Oolong is a real treat.  Rich rose and other floral flavors pour out of its earthy red tones. Please keep in mind that this tea is not roasted! The flavor and color comes from a longer oxidization process than most other oolongs. The perfect mix of black and oolong teas!

Really a great one!

This tea was surprising in how clean and crisp it is for an oolong verging on a black tea. When putting the leaves in a warm gaiwan, could have sworn it was roasted from the heavy oxidation. The earthiness was light, worked well as subsequent infusions had different flavors develop, all with a beautiful rose floral note which tied everything together. Got seven infusions and could have kept going with it, no bitterness at all. A unique and excellent one which will be on my next order for sure.

A Sweet Treat!

This red is heavenly. It's like drinking a dessert but without the calories! If you like dessert 'flavored' teas then I highly recommend this tea as your entry into the world of 'pure' teas. The sweet rosy floral of this tea is not added. It's simply how the tea naturally tastes!
