Mandarin, sultanas, soft cinnamon spice
This seasons Spring pick features a special blend of flavours drawn in from the sub tropical south eastern Pacific coast of Taiwan. Cultivars, jin suang and chin sing have been expertly blended to create a tea that's in a word, yum. Beginning with light fruits of sultana and pear aroma, flavours of bright mandarin meld smoothly with a soft spicy cinnamon. This taste package draws out into a long lingering finish well after your cup is empty. This unique tea shows off the tea masters oolong skills, starting with extensive withering of the freshly picked leaves, 80% oxidisation and high level baking, all cumulating into a ball style oolong of glossy red browns and tan. An oolong to be savoured and enjoyed, try it with a dry cheddar.
