A scent of orange and honey characterises this highly fermented Oolong ( 60 to 70%). It has a very velvety taste, intensive like a black tea but without the bitterness. The leaves are left in their natural shape after the processing. The colour of the infusion is orange-red.
Only the bud and the first two leaves have been picked on very noble Oolong tea bushes.

When you brew this tea for the first time, you wonder whether it is a black tea. It is indeed an Oolong tea which fermentation brings it close to a black tea.
It combines the intensive aroma of black teas with the complexity of Oolongs and without the astringency often to be found in black teas. The scent of orange and honey will amplify and stays in your mouth for a while.
A very special oolong tea that will ravish those of us who seek a strong intensive but velvety and complex tea.
