Louise the tea taster says
Oolong tea, sometimes known as blue tea, is part fermented and this one - tung ting - takes its name from the mountainous region in Taiwan where it is grown. This area is regarded by those who know about this kind of thing - us included - as one of the finest around. We’re very proud to be able to offer a genuine oolong tea, as these teas are mostly sold to the local Taiwanese at hundreds of dollars – a bit more pricey than your average cuppa, but worth every penny.
How does it taste?
Oolong tea sits between green and black. This tea will deliver the strength of a black tea, with the aromatic, flowery flavours of a green tea. Green tea is for now, but tung ting will be the next big thing.
Good if you're feeling
a little blue. No, really. This is yoga for the mind, without the embarrassing leotard or spine-cracking back bends. Oolong, like green tea, is reputed to keep you skinny and young. Let’s hope it’s true.
