This is a Wu Yi varietal black tea called “Golden Peony" 金牡丹 that is typically processed into a roasted oolong tea. By processing into a black tea this unique varietal provides a very satisfying experience for the drinker. Replete with fruit aroma and sweetness, it is also lightly astringent but with thick mouth-feel and pleasant cha qi.
We recommend brewing this with 90C water to gradually coax out flavors and aromas.
