A completely unique tea which is very much like a cross between an oolong and pu'erh. It features a sweet lingering floral taste with a gentle bitterness typically found in young pu'erh.
Produced from leaves which are usually destined for pu'erh cakes, the unique processing as an oolong offers the best of both worlds, by bringing out many of the pu'erh characteristics while rounding out the tea and making it perfect for immediate drinking.
