Oolong tea has to be the most diverse tea type in terms of aromas and flavours. This is because of the wide variety of production methods and the number of different processes that can be experimented with by the tea makers.
In this flight box we present three China Oolong teas to taste side-by-side. By experiencing a flight of teas in a horizontal tasting we can directly compare the teas and learn more about them in the process.
This China Oolong Tea Flight box contains three top quality teas which have been selected for comparative tastings. The box contains a letter written by myself to explain the key differences between the teas and how these affect the sensory experience.
The box contains tasting cards to fill out for your reference. Once you have completed a comparative tasting there will be plenty of tea remaining for individual tea sessions.
This box contains:
Dark roasted Wuyi Yan Cha (rock oolong). Charcoal caramel leading to cranberry juice soaked wood. Vanilla whisky, fresh tobacco and ripe apricots.
Tropical, juicy fruit laden Oolong with a quenching dry finish. Boiled cherry sweets, yellow roses, banana, mangosteen and wood resins.
Superior grade Anxi oolong for the most discerning tea drinker. Honeysuckle, orchid and light banana cream with a gentle spinach and grass finish.
