Sun Bear
Oolong tea, Vietnam

Caramel, aniseed, fennel, nut ~ ultra-light & creamy
These leaves are harvested from tea plants that grow wild in the Cho Long area of Son La, 120 km west of Hanoi in northern Vietnam. After plucking and withering, the leaves undergo heavy oxidation, followed by compression and rolling into pellets, and are then briefly roasted.

When stepped, the little pellets unfurl to reveal notes of caramel, aniseed, fennel and nut. This lovely tea is ultra-light in body with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel and no astringency.

September 2020 harvest.

Preparation: Steep for 4 minutes at 90°. Four infusions.
