Donyi Polo Special Summer Oolong Tea

description

Donyi Polo in Arunachal Pradesh was planted in 1986, the first tea garden in this state. Three major variety of tea plants - Assamica, Chinary and Cambodia are grown here. This tea, an oolong, is made from a mix of China and Assam clones. It's quite a non-traditional oolong, and resembles a white tea in character, with sweet vegetal and woody flavors.

The liquor is incredibly smooth, sweet, mellow, and tipped with sweet vegetal and woody flavors that can be relished throughout the length of the cup. Sweet vegetal and partly floral notes are detected at the edges. A second steep brings out the floral notes with cucumber and wheat grass characters.

Best ''Pure'' tea I ever had

This is one of the best "pure teas" that I have tasted so far. Makes very exotic Iced Tea as well. Light, fresh, fragrant and floral. A joy to drink!
