This Oolong originates from the Phoobsering tea garden and is one of the best Darjeeling Oolongs we have tasted.
The camelia sinensis leaves used to produce this tea are fermented for less time than they would be for the classic Darjeeling teas This method creates the light, fragrant taste of a Himalayan tea with the bakey touch of an Oolong.
The perfectly worked leaf is slightly open and twisted. It shows a high content of silvery white tips and has dark, fully fermented leaf edge.s
Brew using 6 heaped teaspoons of tea to 1 litre of boiling water for 2 - 3 minutes.
Not all Darjeeling gardens are qualified to produce Darjeeling Oolong; only those with the following conditions are capable of making it:
Altitudes 3000 ft above sea level are required.
Old China bush (Chesima) concentration should cover at least 40% of total tea-growing area.
Clonal type (AV II) is required – at least 25% at high altitude.
Average temperatures should remain between 5 and 20 °C throughout the season.
Lower elevation gardens can produce teas of similar appearance, but the flavour differs greatly from the main characteristics of Oolong tea.
