Description

This tea is harvested in the Ilam valley. It comes from Mai Pokhari, a natural space which is revered in Hiduism and Buddhism. This delicious Oolong is inspired by the production methods used to create roasted "vintage" Taiwanese tea.

An atypical oolong with fruity, toasted and honey notes. It has a rounded, delicately powdery texture that coats the palate.
