Originated in the 19th Century, this oolong tea grows amidst misty high mountains, carefully enveloping their brisk whiffs and mellow herbal aromas. Careful oxidation of the fresh green leaves and the balanced fruity profile of this tea is an enjoyable delight to any palate.

Taste and Aroma Notes
A mild vegetal aroma tingles the palate as herbal undernotes take over to create a satisfying and clean mouthfeel.
We recommend re-steeping this tea up to 4 times using 3 grams of tea leaves for 150ml of water.
100 grams = 132 cups of tea.
This tea will last for multiple infusions throughout the day. One of the greatest advantages of drinking good quality loose-leaf tea is that each serving can be re-steeped many times.
