    description

    This is a blended oolong with a complex, more-brisk-than-usual character. 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. Its likely to find takers among those with an adventurous palate.
