Homestyle Red OolongFloating Leaves Tea
When I found this tea I was totally blown away at how rich, clean and satisfying it is, and that it's such a low price. I've been looking for teas like this for years now. It doesn't need to be fancy, but good to drink and good for your health. This is one of those teas! That's why I call it 'homestyle'. In other words, its unpretentious and satisfying.
Notes of malt sugar, dried fruit, fresh baked rye bread. The aroma is rich and full, fat and solid. It doesn't have the complex fruit notes of high elevation tea, but makes up for it with a rich satisfying broth that feels clean and comfortable as it enters the body. I could (and do!) drink this tea all day.
Grown in a clean, low maintenance tea garden on Dong Ding mountain and lightly roasted to bring out its savory nature, this tea has characteristics of Dong Ding with the sweet richness of red oolong. If you like GABA Oolong, Alishan Black, or the Crimson high elevation black teas, I recommend you give this one a try.
