Description from Mountain Stream Teas:

A heavily oxidized tea from Taidong, this Red Oolong is a real treat. Rich rose and other floral flavors pour out of its earthy red tones. Please keep in mind that this tea is not roasted! The flavor and color comes from a longer oxidization process than most other oolongs. The perfect mix of black and oolong teas!

• 3-5g per 100ml
• ~100C water (212f)
