Category: Oolong

Origin: Lugu, Taiwan

Harvest: Winter 2018

This rose Oolong is made with Shan Lin Xi of the Qing Xin cultivar, grown at an elevation of 1400m. The tea leaves are infused with fresh organic rose petals over the course of 3 days. The delicious buttery green of Shan Lin Xi, combined with the elegant floral notes of the fresh rose petals, creates a perfect combination of crisp sweetness. The balance of these two elements brings back memories of the sweet plum candies I used to enjoy as a child, which then and still now leaves me reaching for more (tea).

Tasting Notes: sweet subtle notes of rose with crisp clear notes of Shanlinxi.

Due to the labor intensive process and small yields, we will only be offering this this in our farmer’s original packaging (25 grams). This will help preserve the freshness of the organic rose petals, and to help promote our farmer who put his heart and soul into making this tea.
