Organic Volcano Oolong

(1 customer review)

$5.00$32.00 (from $0.56/cup)

Grown on an active volcano, this medium-bodied oolong produces a straw-colored liquor with a sweet grassy aroma and mild astringency. The complex flavor is reminiscent of cinnamon and bay with slightly floral undertones and a lingering finish.

    I received this as a free sample with my first order, and it ended up being my favorite of the bunch! Before trying this, I would have never picked a tea that had “cinnamon” notes, as I much prefer sweet teas without much spice. This was SO good, probably one of the most unique experiences I’ve had with a tea. Complex and great for Gong Fu brewing, but also makes a nice cold brew. Difficult to describe the flavors but I would encourage anyone to try it. I’m busy trying other teas from Zerama, but I’ll be back to purchase some of this for sure.

Description

 

This certified organic tea derives its rich flavor from the minerals of the volcanic soil of Cen Wang Lao Shan (岑王老山). Qing Xin Ruan Zhi Cultivar is grown at an altitude higher than many Taiwan oolongs in Tianli County, Guangxi, near the Yunnan border. It is then processed in the style of a Taiwan oolong. This produces a tea that is like a cross between a Dong Ding and Wuyi yancha.  In fact, this is the cultivar that was originally brought to Taiwan from Wuyi and was first cultivated as Dong Ding Oolong.
