About Each Tea
One of our most highly anticipated teas is finally back in stock!
The Champagne Oolong is a highly oxidized tea with an aromatic sweetness that lingers long after. It's made in the style similar to a Taiwanese oolong tea often carrying the same name, and is well loved for the signature aroma of rose and Muscat grape.
Often known as a “bug-bitten tea”, the tea's distinct flavor is attributed to the tea cricket, Jacobiasca formosana that thrive during the warmer months. After the leafhopper bites the tea plant, the leaves produce a hormone as a defense mechanism. During the oxidation process in production, the high levels of these hormone translates to the deep floral and grape-y character we then later taste in our cup.
Our #1 bestselling tea - and for good reason.
The quality of some Vietnamese oolongs has increased significantly in recent years due to adopting plant cultivars, techniques and expertise from Taiwan. The Red Oolong is a great example of what came out of this collaboration.
Produced on a 33 hectare farm on the rolling Mộc Châu plateau, the Red Oolong has an attractive amber liquor and deep flavors like dried persimmons and freshly roasted nuts. The initial sun-drying process right after harvesting, and extended drying and rolling cycle to tease out the tea's flavors are one of the many factors that make this tea special.
Very smooth drinking, soft aftertaste, the teas are not bitter or have a hard mouth feel at all. Can steep multiple times. This is an excellent/top-tier representation of oolongs.
