Yellow Gold Oolong Tea

黄金桂乌龙茶

The Origin Story

Sourced from the sub-tropical mountains of Fujian, our Yellow Gold Oolong combines the full-bodied, caramelised biscuit flavour typical of oolong teas with the grassy freshness of spring green teas. The tea is composed of hand-rolled leaf which open on infusion to give a characteristic yellow-gold infusion with lime-green hues.

China - Fujian

Fujian is home to some of the world's best oolongs, white and black teas

Anxi County in Fujian is the original home of this tea. Along with Wuyi, Anxi is a renowned centre for oolong production in Fujian, itself the home of oolong tea. The history of tea production in Fujian stretches back over 1000 years.

    Good intro oolong
    A very drinkable oolong. Very clean, not that dissimilar to some green teas. Not as complex/ rich or as interesting a tea as my favourite oolongs, like the Pheonix Honey Orchid.

    very nice smooth flavour. more full bodied than tie guan yin with quite a lot going on as far as flavours, yes i got rasberries as one reviewer wrote, but i think the citrus flavour was the most prominent

    Delicate sweet fruits and cucumber
    Wow! I've just received my first sample of this and I'm so impressed. The fragrance of the dried leaves was of orchids, even stronger when they first touched moisture in my freshly washed small glass jug. I did a 30 sec wash and then a first infusion of 3 minutes. My first sips of this were very rewarding. I had to close my eyes and think about the delicate flavours. I tasted water melon, raspberry and cucumber! A second infusion confirmed these tastes and was just as good. it's basically like eating summer fruits and cucumber whilst standing in an orchid house. I will certainly buy more of this.
