Description

Oolong Tea SymbolThe Very Velvet Oolong Tea Experience: bright, floral, greenSliced Strawberries and Raspberries

Very Velvet, indeed! This tea exudes a luscious, intense, velvety-smooth flavor and a fresh, blossomy aroma.

Tasting Notes: smooth, savory, floral, fruity

As you brew Very Velvet Oolong, the tightly curled leaves expand enormously as they impart a soft amber color into hot water. The enticing and aromatic notes of strawberry and blue cornflower combine with the distinctively floral quality of a full-bodied green oolong. Floral flavors are balanced by the buttery undertones of the savory-sweet oolong. Further complexities come forward with peachy notes and a hint of jasmine. The aftertaste leaves you with a lush, refreshing flavor to savor...

Ingredients: Oolong, blue corn flowers, strawberry pieces, flavor.

Additional Information

Savoring Your Experience:

Relish this special tea with a fruit and cheese platter and flaky, buttery pastries. Serve anytime of day.

Always brew with fresh water, just prior to a full boil. Experiment with the amount of leaves and vary steeping times to find your perfect cup. This tea evolves over multiple steepings, so be sure to brew it multiple times in one session.

Fun Facts:

Oolongs are enjoyable to watch as they steep and unfurl. A glass teapot and clear glass infuser insert are excellent for viewing the expanding leaves.

    I just tried this variety of Oolong tea for the first time. I don't know how much caffeine it has but to me the tea tastes like a lullaby. Soothing. Relaxing and oh so smooth! Highly recommend it.
