Traditional tong-ting oolong tea with a sweet aroma reminiscent of sugarcane, a comforting texture and a creamy finish.

 

sugar cane · balanced · creamy

 

This tea follows a traditional tong-ting oolong technique where the tea leaves were painstakingly shaped into ball shapes with cloth. This process is done after the oxidation process. The cloth helps to prevent leaves from tearing. It also helps the residual heat to dissipate, resulting in a shiny sheen on the finished tea.

 

This oolong tea is available in single-serve 6g loose leaf, 12 pyramid tea bags, 100g loose leaf or 25g bio-degradable gift jar.
