Taiwan is famous for its Oolong teas which are a delightful blend of Chinese artistry, Japanese standardisation and incredible Taiwanese mountain terroirs.

In this flight box we present three Taiwanese Oolongs 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 Taiwan 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:

Eastern Beauty

Terpene rich leafhopper bitten Oolong. Bright notes of elderflower, geranium and lychee and warmer notes of honey, rose and fermented overripe muscat grapes.

A rich and luxurious tea made from the naturally milky Jin Xuan cultivar. Malted milkshake, high mountain grass, alpine rhododendrons and cream.
