This tea is produced in a family-run plantation in Indonesia. It is a partially oxidised oolong that is made from the Si Ji Chun cultivar. It is known as Sukui - "gratitude" in Indonesian - in recognition of the natural world which brings us these unique flavours.
A rounded and sweet oolong, with gourmet butter and vanilla notes and an intense floral hint. It is reminiscent of flavourful oolong teas from Taiwan.
