The Premium Orange Oolong blend was created using a semi-fermented oolong from Taiwan known for a lively full flavor with hints of berry jam and sweet floral undertones. Since food quality orange blossoms are a little harder to come by today than during the Victorian era. After extensive profiling we recreated their flavor using a mix of jasmine and dried orange pieces which we added to the tea. Rounding out the blend is a Ceylon black tea for some added depth. Like love, the cup is sublime. Brew a pot for someone special today!
