Champagne Oolong (Oriental Beauty)
A rare and exquisite Oolong tea with notes of honey, flowers, poached stone fruit, muscatel and a slight earthiness. Champagne Oolong, put this on your top shelf like a fine wine and enjoy every amazing cup.
The rarity of this tea lies in how it is grown. The leaves themselves are bitten by green leaf-hoppers while still growing, this causes a reaction in the leaves to release additional polyphenols, tannins, and aromatic compounds that act as a defence mechanism. The result is a pleasurable honey-like flavour. Young leaves and tips are used and heavily oxidized to achieve the slightly baked and woody flavour. A great cup for connoisseurs and those new fine teas.
