This delicate strip-style oolong is true to its dry leaf aroma of jasmine and produces a yellowish-green clear liquor that is surprisingly floral with a vegetal sweetness of fresh peas.
It coats the roof of your mouth and tongue with a smooth and light creaminess, and lingers with notes of honey and osmanthus flowers growing in a spring garden.
A fresh and light tea that would pair nicely with Edamame tossed in oil with rock salt and fresh mint served as an appetizer. For an afternoon tea in a garden setting, serve with baklava or banana cake.
