This tea is a unique oolong. Its leaves have been bitten by a small insect called the Paoli, in the same way as Oriental Beauty leaves. It has been produced in two stages, like someaged Taiwanese teas.
This gourmet, slightly toasted oolong suits all tastes thanks to its full-bodied texture and sweet flavour.
