Orchid Oolong from Art of Tea is one of those Oolong Teas I have had more than once throughout my Tea Loving Life. There is a strong possibility that I have reviewed this one elsewhere at some point and time.
Regardless some ‘classic choices’ deserve to be revisited time and time again and that is exactly how I feel about this tea.
If you’re looking for a solid Oolong to share with the masses – this one has to be right up there! The natural aroma is that of lilac and the texture on the tongue is a buttery, fresh feeling that last long after the sip.
I feel like I’m almost THERE right smack-dab in the middle of Taiwan – covered in a cool mist and surrounded by crisp streams – just like this tea leaf would be. Art of Tea says the tea leaves are hand-picked and basket-tossed and then rolled into kernels that wait to unfold in your teapot. What an experience!
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Oolong
Where to Buy: Art of Tea
Our Orchid Oolong tea is grown in the hilltops of Nantou, Taiwan. Often covered in cool mist and surrounded by crisp streams, the leaves are hand-picked and basket-tossed in a process known as oxidization. They are then rolled into kernels that wait to unfold in your teapot. The resulting tea has a unique lilac flavor that is full and smooth, with a fresh orchid finish. It can be steeped multiple times (each time unlocking a different taste).
