This elegant and sophisticated blend is made using a lightly oxidized Pouchong oolong. We’ve added natural essence of vanilla and organic lemon myrtle for a flavor that is luxuriously smooth and rich in complexity.

Oolongs are only partially oxidized.  That is how they differ from other types of tea.  Whereas black teas are fully oxidized and green teas are completely un-oxidized, oolongs fall somewhere in between amidst a wide spectrum of flavor profiles.  Our Oolong Nirvana falls toward the less oxidized end of the spectrum with an light, smooth body and delicate richness.

Oolong Nirvana is made from a  Pouchong oolong (also known as a Bao Zhong) which is a specialty Taiwanese tea grown in the Wen Shan Mountain region surrounding Taipei.  Bao Zhong is Chinese for “paper wrapped” which refers to a traditional method of packaging from the mid nineteenth century that conserved the tea’s freshness on its way to market. Pouchongs are known for being incredibly aromatic with light floral notes and a gently earthy, vegetal quality.

If you are an oolong purist, please note that we also offer a top grade, unflavored Pouchong called Bao Zhong Superior.

 Pouchong (Bao Zhong) is one of the oldest Taiwanese oolongs.  It has been cultivated in the Pinglin region for nearly 125 years.

Oolong Nirvana is rather versatile.  Drink it first thing in the morning with scones or toast spread with raspberry jam.  It also works well after dinner as a digestif or when paired with creamy desserts.

As a general rule, when pairing oolongs you will want to avoid anything too buttery.

We recommend steeping Oolong Nirvana for 3 minutes at 195°.
