Arya Topaz Darjeeling Oolong (Organic)
Arya Topaz Darjeeling Oolong (Organic)A chance to experience this rare oolong tea produced in Darjeeling, India.
Only a select few tea estates in Darjeeling are qualified to produce oolong tea: altitudes of over 3000ft above sea level are required, along with a specified average growing temperature. The organically certified Arya Estate is one of only a handful of qualified estates producing this exclusive tea that is typically full bodied with distinctive notes of chocolate and a rare taste of muscatel grape.
This is a classic example of a second flush Darjeeling oolong: deep, amber liquor with a rich aroma of chocolate and a fruity taste with a lingering sweetness and just the right amount of astringency. A great tea to accompany a slice of fruit cake in the afternoon.
