Darjeeling Oolong Tea

$10

description

This oolong comes from a small-lot tea cooperative located in the foothills of the Himalayas. We love this tea for it's complex, more-brisk-than-usual oolong characters. The dry leaf mix has an abundance of tips which lends brightness to the cup, while the high-fired leaves embolden the brew with darker, more earthy flavors. It's likely to find takers among those with an adventurous palate.
