This Grand Cru oolong is made in Mae Salong, in Chiang Rai Province, Thailand. Its tea leaves are harvested at over 1,000 metres above sea level before being carefully rolled into pearl shapes.
A delicious round and sweet tea which reveals floral, honeyed, buttery and vanilla notes alongside a lovely vegetal freshness.
In order to bring out all the aromatic complexity of this tea, we recommend mutiple infusions multiples using the traditional Chinese Gong Fu Cha method.
