OOLONG TEA: Three Moons, Vietnam
Oolong tea, Vietnam
Flavour: vegetal, floral and fruity ~ smooth & creamy
Three Moons is a semi-oxidised oolong that is lightly roasted multiple times over three months – or ‘three moons’ – to give it characteristics of an aged tea. This enigmatic tea reveals fascinating aromas – vegetal notes of roasted green bean intermingled with nut and fruity notes of green apple and melon, followed by a floral finish. This is the September 2021 harvest.
Three Moons is grown and processed on a 33-hectare tea farm on the rolling Moc Chau plateau at an altitude between 1100 and 1200 metres. Moc Chau lies in Son La Province, Northwest Vietnam. It is a region filled with beautiful landscapes and many tea gardens. It is also known for dairy farming and the growing of plums, apricots and flowers.
Preparation: Steep for 3 minutes at 85°. Three infusions.
Sizes: Three Moons comes in four sizes: a 3 gram single serve, then 20g, 50g and 100g pouches. Our leaves can all be steeped at least twice (often more), so while the 3g pouch is a single serve (150 mls - a standard tea cup size), it will give you two cups if you steep the leaves twice.
