Oolong tea – India

R110.00

Breaking tradition

My birthplace – Bihar – is not traditionally a tea farming region, but growers were invited here to nurture the local economy. The tea-loving Lochan family created an experimental garden on the banks of the Doke River, which soon became renowned for its quality teas. Here, I’m cultivated with respect for nature with no pesticides or herbicides.

 

Ingredients: Whole tea leaves and buds, semi-fermented and dark-roasted for flavour. (30G – 30 Cups)

Flavour: Subtle, lightly buttery and fully-rounded.

Aroma: Sweet and lightly floral with hints of lush rose fragrance.

Health benefits: Some say I’m naturally good for the metabolism, fighting stress and reducing diabetes risk.
