This is a famous style of oolong from Taiwan. It shows higher oxidation but no roasting and acts as inspiration for famous black tea producing regions, such as Darjeeling. The bug-bitten leaves ensure a rich, aromatic body and a bubbly mouthfeel, some spicy and muscatel hints. Reminiscent of Indian summer days.
