Tea Rebellion - Medium Roast Oolong

$10.99

Tea Rebellion's Medium Roast Oolong is medium oxidized which is rolled in big cloths during processing to have the distinct physical appeal.

The rolling leads to a slower unfolding of taste notes, so re-sleep this tea several times to allow all leaves to unfold completely. Made from a distinct variety that gives milky and creamy notes, this tea is naturally sweet and has a lasting finish. This oolong also makes an excellent iced tea.

Tea Character:  

Sweet, Earthy, Everlasting
