When it comes to Himalayan teas, Oolongs are definitely not the sort of teas to come to mind. Granted that this oolong does not fit into the standard oriental style oolongs in terms of appearance, but this tea is processed with the aim of achieving a semi-oxidized state. The growing terrior on the pristine lands of the Himalayas at 1850m above sea level also contributes to flavours that are delicate and refreshing. The brew has a buttery base, with chrysenthemum-like floral notes, with slight fruitiness amongst the mild astringency. A very unusual flavour profile for a Himalayan tea, and reminds us of a lightly roasted Taiwanese Oolong instead!
