Red Oolong #2
Red oolong means undergoes heavy oxidation at around 90%, so it falls into a category of oolong teas that treads a fine line between an oolong and a light black tea. It is always difficult to classify such teas and to decide whether they should be included in black or oolong tea categories. However, since this particular tea is made from a cultivar that is normally used for oolongs and as it follows the method of production closer to an oolong tea, it was more apt to classify it as an oolong.
Red Oolong offers a smooth, balanced, mildly sweet, rich but not quite bold flavor profile, with elements of fruit compote, pumpkin pie, and a hint of dried flowers. It unrolls many layers throughout the cup that include biscuit, warm bread, honeysuckle, wildflower honey, cocoa, apricot, and a hint of lychee
