This is a rare oolong from a small garden in Lam Dong, Vietnam, made as a tribute to the tun ting teas of Taiwan. Each leaf is meticulously hand rolled for a taste that is light, piney and perfectly balanced

Final thoughts: A nice Oolong that seems to have extremely low oxidation tastes more like a green in later steepings than a Oolong not amazingly complex but enough to hold your attention for the full duration of the session. If approached mentally like a green tea more than a Oolong you may get much more enjoyment out of it .
