Ooooh Darjeeling is a rare oolong tea from Darjeeling, India, where it is fairly uncommon to produce anything other than black tea. However, the growers of Singbulli Estate have produced this exquisite exception. Complex muscat grape and apricot pit aroma (also a characteristic of fine Darjeeling black teas, interestingly), tangy dried fruit flavor and deep floral notes that linger like any great oolong should are reminiscent of Oriental Beauty oolong. This Darjeeling oolong is a must-try for anyone seeking to learn more about tea on a deeper level: this is an exercise in the taste of 'terroir', the place where the tea is grown.
Steep at 212° for 3-4 minutes.
