Description

Neither green nor black, this full leaf medium oxidized oolong tea hails from the famed Wuyi Mountain in China's Fujian Province. Wuyi Mountain is known for its outstanding biodiversity and is identified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  The large organically cultivated leaves of our Wuyi Rock tea are cultivated for their rich, full flavor. Tea leaves from Wuyi Mountain are quite difficult to harvest given the steep and rocky terrain of the mountain. After plucking, the tea leaves are sun withered and then taken indoors for partial oxidation to a level of about 40-50%. The leaves are then pan fired (to prevent further oxidation), rolled and dried prior to being gently roasted over charcoal. The wiry, twisted leaf brews up an amber-colored liquor that reveals a complex, fruity, toasty flavor with hints of dark chocolate. While the mouth feel of this and other oolong teas is fairly silky, there is no shortage of flavors to draw you back in, cup after cup.  Another advantage of this full leaf oolong is the ability to steep the leaves multiple times, each offering subtle new flavors over successful infusions all the while adding more value for your tea purchase.  (contains caffeine)
