Light Roast Oolong
Light Roast Oolong: grown at over 1,500m elevation on Hehuanshan in central Taiwan. Crafted from the QinXin, or “Green Heart” tea varietal, known for its floral, vegetal, and sweet flavors. When these delicate leaves are then lightly roasted over time with periods of rest in between, deeper caramel-like notes come out. These flavors combine for an amazingly balanced, lightly oxidized, gently roasted, high mountian oolong that we are excited to include in our collection.
Tasting notes: toast, chrysanthemum, honey, walnut.
