WU YI OOLONG
The mist-shrouded cliffs of the Wuyi Mountains in the Fujian province of southeastern China have nurtured exquisite teas for thousands of years and are the birthplace of oolong tea. The open dark brown leaves of our organic Wuyi Oolong yield a light amber infusion with a smooth light body and little astringency.
