Red Arbor Oolong Tea

description

We love this tea for its many shades and suggestions of brown, from the toasty smell of the dried leaves, a chestnut infusion, an amber liquor and finally the note of oak wood as we taste it. Setting off these dark flavors are aromatic notes of dried fruit and flowers which come from the young buds that are abundantly present in this blend.

The liquor is soft and starts out on a dry, oak wood-like note. Notes of dried red fruit emerge in the middle but fade away quickly to reveal a mellow note of red rose towards the end. The liquor is full-bodied, and feels ample and well-rounded.
