Big Red Robe | Oolong Tea
Free Gift

Available in 2 ounce quantities only. 

Description: These long, dark, twisted oolong tea leaves are hand processed in very small batches by a tea producing couple in Fuding, Fujian, China. They produce an amazing baked oolong that is slightly toasty/sweet, extremely smooth, mellow, rich, complex, and silky with a lingering aftertaste. The leaves for this tea are grown in the Wuyi Mountains of northern Fujian. But the tea itself is made near Fuding, Fujian (home of Silver Needles white tea) by one of our favorite tea producers Yanmei Li.
