Yellow Gardenia Oolong (Chinese: huáng zhī xiāng 黄枝香) is a popular tea for first time oolong tea drinkers. Its leaves are lightly oxidized and medium roasted to perfection, giving it strong aromatics and a light astringency that does not linger for too long.

I love being able to support family-based tea companies. Especially ones that really show you what a difference it makes in their lives. This oolong has a unique tasting profile, like many oolong, that changes as you steep it longer. It starts floral and sweet and then changes to earthy and mineral.
