Taiwan 'Ali Shan' Heavy-Roast 'Tie Guan Yin' Oolong Tea



A very well roasted tea with a smooth and sweet lingering taste of dried fruit coupled with a gentle nuttiness in the finish.

The tea undergoes multiple medium roasts to produce a gentle roasted effect which accentuates the native characteristics of the tea.

The tea is a good candidate for ageing as it should change over time as it rests from the roast.
