This set is a perfect gift for a tea lover or a nice way to be introduced to Oolong Tea.
Each tin contains 1.5 oz of tea, has double lids for air tight closure, and can be reused.
Listed below are the varieties in the Gift Set:
Frozen Summit – Green oolong from central Taiwan. Very flowery with layers of roasted, floral, spicy cassia aromas and a full, balanced sweetness. Yields multiple infusions.
Black Dragon – From the famous oolong producing area of Anxi in Fujian, China, Black Dragon is a 40 percent oxidized oolong. The leaves are tightly rolled into small pellets. When infused, the leaves unfold into their original state with a toasted aroma and a sweet, strong, grain aftertaste.
Green Dragon – Smooth oolong from Fujian Province, China. Full-bodied golden infusion with a toasty, grassy-sweet flavor and light floral notes.
