China Yunnan Jingmai 'Light Roast' Oolong Tea

Z - Archive

A most unusual oolong produced from tea leaves typically used to produce pu'erh. It has a strong aroma and full taste with nutty and roasted notes coupled with a gentle sweetness.

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.
