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.
