      Oolong Tea (Organic)

      Shui Xian, a very popular cultivar from Wu Yi Shan, is used to make numerous types of Oolong. Sometimes spelled Shui Hsien, this particular modestly-priced medium-oxidized tea is highly roasted creating a strong, full-bodied cup. The roasted, mineral-like taste followed by refreshing floral notes make this a great tea to sip while dining. Excellent everyday Oolong option. Try it iced as well!
