99% Oxidized Purple Oolong Tea is a rare treat from Sumatra, Indonesia. It steeps a rich brew that delivers a full roasted, dark purple infusion with solid notes of cinnamon, musk, and amber.
Oxidation involves bruising and rolling the leaves in order to break the cell walls to allow oxygen to enter. Oxidation causes the flavor of the tea to change. In this case, the leaf is allowed to almost completely oxidize creating a very strong oolong taste.
Our 99% Oxidized Purple Oolong Tea can be steeped several times. Some consider the third and fourth steepings the best.
