Indian Oolong is a relatively new type of tea.

Tea evolves. Nowadays, tea producers get inspiration from the world, embrace new ideas and new techniques. As a result, we see new trends and new products. India, historically known for its remarkable blacks, increasingly introduces new types of tea, lighter and greener on the oxidation scale. Darjeeling oolongs, young, and bright, and very promising – represent a new generation of Indian tea.

What kind of tea is it?

Best Darjeeling oolongs, although a departure from full-fermented traditional Indian teas, tend to maintain muscatel flavor of their ancestors. They produce light amber clear infusion with pronounced astringency and sweet finish.

The best conditions for a good oolong are a fine patch of the right chinary or clonal tea bushes at an altitude with temperatures from 5 to 20oC. And this one's got all of those.

We loved the suggestion of sweet fragrance of white orchids in the flavor profile of this tea. With its delectable sweet, floral attributes, this blended oolong is a delight to sip all day long.
For a subtly sweet fragrant cup resonant of Darjeeling's high estates, try this brew. Straight off the Classic Mim estate, this oolong will offer a spring to your cup with its floral scent and full-bodied liquor.
