Darjeeling Oolong

Organic Oolong Tea

Cultivated in small quantities and processed by hand, our Darjeeling Oolong is a work of art. The long, curled leaves and silvery tips are markers of top quality tea. It brews a bronze colored infusion with a muscatel, woody flavor. Subtle floral notes lighten the taste and leave a crisp finish.

 

$5.00


This Oolong uses a Chinese Tea variety that is grown within one of the top plantations in Darjeeling - Sinbulli. A darker style oolong with an unmistakable character.

Subtle flavor

As Darjeeling goes,this has a nice subtle taste but I guess I lean toward a stronger more am dominant tea. A good tea just not for me.

Best of two qualities...

I love this tea so much because of its sophistication of Darjeeling while enjoying the health benefits of high quality Oolong. One of my must-have teas.

Perhaps my favorite tea

Simply a great tea! I might recommend just a slightly higher temperature than recommended, and while one teaspoon is good for 3 brewings, I would increase the brew time by 10 seconds or so on the third brew.

Fresh, high quality teas here!

Each person will have their preferences. I have been an Earl Grey fan for years and I use macha for smoothies. Recently I've begun exploring other teas and combinations of teas. I found that macha can be added to black tea, tastes good and is even more healthy that way. Green and black go good together. I often make my hot teas with rice milk or with milk from pasture raised cows. I make it very strong and like it that way. In these warmer days I make black ice teas with lemon of course and I really love the hibiscus, Wow!

So it really is an individual preference what you chose and how you brew it, with innumerable possibilities. But you know that. So all I can say that really serves as a review of value for a perspective customer is why I continue to patronize The Whistling Kettle; Freshness and high quality coupled with fair prices. These people are all about tea. I did my searching and sampling. Now, I need only to return here for the best to enjoy without looking any further. That's it.
