This bright red canister contains 18 tea bags, sourced from the same small growers as our premium loose leaf tea, and packed exclusively for us.
Each year, a portion of our oolong harvest is set aside to be roasted to a greater degree than most Formosa oolongs. The process darkens the tea to create a rich and sweet tea that is smooth and fragrant. The slow roasting gradually caramelizes the natural sugars in the tea and sweetens it, while imparting a depth and complexity to its flavor and aroma. We detect notes of burnt caramel, toffee and brown sugar in this tea.
