The Oolong variant of Darjeeling tea can come in two varieties: one is the Clonal type and the other is China type. Darjeeling Oolong typically uses the second flush which has thicker cup characteristics and a dark orange liquor with distinct Muscatel flavours.

The large, open Oolong leaf with a broad pallete of rich wood colors and longish silvery tips exemplifies the top quality of this tea.
