Our Medium Roast Osmanthus Oolong has a delightful taste of caramel and osmanthus with hints of coffee and cacao. Masterfully roasted for over a week until rich honeyed flavors and floral fragrances developed, then blended with Osmanthus flowers.
Many of the roasted oolongs you'll find today are 'qing xiang' or 'light fragrance' style, popularized by Taiwanese tea makers, which favors a light, floral aroma. This oolong was roasted in-house by our very own tea master; it's an homage to the traditional style of tea making. To develop a deep, rich character, we roasted this tea over the course of 9 days, for a total of 144 hours. This slow roasting gradually caramelizes the natural sugars within the tea and imparts body and layers of complexity.
