Dark Roasted Oolong, Organic Loose-leaf Tea

Background and Cultivation: 

Oolong tea is a variety of semi-fermented tea made through a complex five-step process that includes withering, fermenting, and rolling of the leaves. Of these steps, the fermentation process is the most important.  The degree of oxidization of the leaves will change the flavor profile of the oolong, with lightly fermented teas being akin to a very robust green tea while dark roasted oolongs will be closer to a mellow, but complex flavored black tea.

Oolong teas as a category vary greatly based on the specific tea cultivar and the tea roaster's objectives with each roast.  While the tastes of different oolongs will each be unique, the healthful properties range with the degree of fermentation, with light roasts oolong teas being closer to unfermented green teas and dark roasts closer to fully fermented black teas. 

Our dark roasted Oolong tea has large, wiry tea leaves that produce an amber cup of tea with a warm, but subtle earthy tones, and floral aroma.  The flavor comes across first as nutty but as the leaves steep additional fruity and floral notes emerge.  This dark roasted oolong has a silky finish and a slightly floral aftertaste.
