Pineapple Cream Oolong (China)
Warning: Last items in stock!
Oolongs aren't oxidized enough to be called black tea, but they are too far oxidized to be called a green tea.
There are "light" and "dark" oolongs, and this is a "light" oolong in the Chinese style known as "Ti Kuan Yin" or "Ir4on Goddess of Mercy" which is a sweet, floral, creamy tea with tightly rolled leaves.
However, it is the addition of golden raisins and pineapple flavoring to this tea that steals the show. Upon steeping, the pineapple juice aroma paired with flowers is invigorating and inviting and sets the mood. Take a deep breath and take a sip -- the creamy mouthfeel and sweet floral notes of the oolong are complemented by the lightly flavored pineapple raisins, and you want to drink the entire pot.
