Origin: Westholme BC, Canada
Description: During the harvest of our oolong, the resident swallows put on an impressive flight performance, sharing stories from their seasonal migrations in song. In their honour, we created a semi-oxidized oolong. The leaves are hand plucked, withered, rolled and bruised for optimal oxidization and flavour. The tea is then baked and cooled several times before being finished with a pan roasting.
Tasting Notes: A classic oolong with a warm amber liquor, the tea creates a lovely smooth cup with a warm buttery finish and notes of pepper and honey.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup; Use 100ºC water (full boil) and pour over the large leaves; Steep for 5 minutes. Re-steep many times for an exquisite taste journey.
