Oolong Black Pearls
Is it a black or an Oolong tea? These rolled pearls are so dark that could be considered a full-fledged black tea. However the flowery notes, deep honey taste and lack of bitterness remind us of a classic Taiwanese Oolong, like Dong Ding; and so we prefer to keep it in the Oolong's realm. We won't object though if, to your palate, it recalls rather the notes of aromatic black teas.
The Oolong black pearls are cultivated and processed at a family farm in the north of Thailand with Jin Xuan tea bushes, a traditional Taiwanese cultivar.
