Japanese oolong is a rare tea indeed, so we were thrilled to find one of such high quality and grown organically in balance with nature. This is a tea that will seduce you with subtlety and a deeply satisfying balance of earthiness, malty sweetness and just enough tannin to induce salivation.
Grown and produced by the Nakai family, the current being the eighth generation to carry on the craft and tradition of authentic, premium organic tea. About 40 years ago, the family returned to the organic way of farming by abandoning chemical fertilizers and pesticides and instead, let nature do what it has always done...take care of itself.

As with most of our teas, this tea can be steeped several times. Second infusions are usually made with slightly hotter water and about half the time. Third or fourth infusions require longer times of 90+ seconds. Please remember, these are guidelines to get you started and you may find your preference is to adjust them.
