Teabox Private Reserve Donyi Polo Oolong Tea

description

A clonal tea from Arunachal Pradesh, it looks beautiful with golden buds and black leaves. When steeped, they open up as green leaves with clear serrations and red coppery tints. The flavors - of fresh yet mellow citrus flavors coupled with the refreshing aroma of eucalyptus - makes it a great all-day choice.
