Rou Gui | Oolong Tea
SILVER MEDAL winner in the 2019 Global Tea Championships
Description: These amazing, large, hand-made leaves have a slight caramel/toasty aroma and deliver a cup that is very complex and evolves as it steeps. You'll encounter hints of sweet plum/pear and mineral notes that linger on your tongue. A truly one of a kind tea.
