This tea is a throwback to a different age before “green oolong” was the status quo.  The long oxidation on this tea softens and rounds the natural bouquet while the light but skillful baking brings out characteristics reminiscent of a freshly baked loaf of country bread.

Notes: Fresh Toast, Grass-fed Butter, Dried Gardenias

The key feature that gives this Oolong tea it’s own personality is the long oxidization.  Using more time consuming methods this tea produced from the Four Springs Cultivar is given several extra hours to oxidize.  This long exposure subtly transforms the floral characteristics and softens the tannins.  After the fixing this tea is also given a slightly longer baking than its greener cousins.  The longer processing and different market demands make this style harder to find.

SanBolin is a little tea village sitting on the edge of the famed Bagua Shan. The local temple has carvings denoting all the steps to tea processing.
