This enchanting oolong is softly flavored with the essence of ripe passion fruit then blended with mango, aronia berries and rose petals.

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 Passion falls toward the more oxidized end of the spectrum, giving it a somewhat earthy character.

Our Oolong Passion is grown in Taiwan and has a long, slightly twisted leaf. Oolongs are often intentionally made from larger, more mature leaves than green, white, or even black teas.  It is not unusual for a premium oolong to be made from a plucking that includes four leaves as opposed to a finer plucking that usually only includes the bud and the first two leaves.

Taiwan’s tea production is relatively small compared to other major tea growing regions.  They produce less than 20,000 tons of tea each year, a vast majority of which is consumed domestically. Most Taiwanese tea gardens are very small operations compared to their Chinese and Indian counterparts.  Many of them are still family owned and they focus primarily on specialty oolongs.

Oolong Passion pairs well with mango, grilled chicken or duck.

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