ORGANIC HEAVY ROAST OOLONG TEA
Flavor: Deep woodsy aroma. Mellow, full-bodied roasted character. Subtle smoky, fruity aftertaste.
This batch of tea is a combination of Four Seasons Spring and Jin Xuan tea leaves that are heavily oxidized in their processing upon being harvested. This combination of hybrid teas offers a broader, more balanced range of character, especially when undergoing these unique curing methods. The proportionately mixed batch of tea leaves is then aged for one year to allow for post production oxidation. After a year of aging, they undergo an extensive roasting process. The leaves are roasted at low temperature for over 20 hours per session, for a total of 3 roasting sessions, with 3 months of "setting time" between each roasting. After the batch of tea leaves has been roasted to the desired result, it is then aged again for one year to mellow and "settle" in its composition. Finally, the leaves are minimally roasted at low temperature to deplete any acquired moisture content before being vacuum sealed in preparation for sale.
