Let go of the path leading you from A to B, and follow that foxfire bioluminescence into the forest - you’ll find the same glow in your cup when you brew this tea. Take a stroll through the forested mountains at the heart of Taiwan with this jade oolong from the fabled heights of Da Yu Ling mountain.
The Oolong Teas from the high mountain peaks of Taiwan have a unique magic to them. The strong floral fragrance from the dry leaves carries over many brews, and lingers at the bottom of the cup as an aroma of sweet cream.
