Ruby Oolong is a special type of oolong tea produced in the Doi Mae Salong mountainous region in northern Thailand. This full-bodied oolong tea is deeply oxidized and slowly baked to bring out complex layers of flavor with a sublime, elegant structure. The soil in northern Thailand is soft and loamy, providing a concentration of nutrients not found in other oolong tea origins. This lends a unique sweetness and rich viscosity in mouthfeel. This tea makes for an excellent introduction into oolongs with its comforting deep fermentation and baked aromatics.


Origin

Doi Mae Salong, Thailand

Tasting Notes
