What is it about ?
Oolong tea from the Bolovens plateau in Laos is a very high quality tea. Low in tannin and caffeine, Oolong tea has a mineral and vegetal aroma with a flavor of undergrowth. Produced from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis shrub, Oolong tea, also called Wulong tea or blue tea, is slightly oxidized. It is a semi-fermented tea because its oxidation is stopped sooner than black teas but later than green teas. The Oolong tea sold here comes from an organic and fair trade farm located on the Bolovens plateau in Laos. Picking, sweating, roasting and drying are carried out in a traditional way to offer a tea of great taste quality. Our sachets contain long leaves rolled delicately to offer a tea with a sweet taste, without bitterness and soft on the palate.
