25% oxidized (roasted) and coming from the Wuji mountains of Fujian province in China, this tea grows at an altitude of 800m. Its name means "golden sea turtle" and comes from a legend telling of the transformation of a turtle into a tea tree.
The leaves are fermented, roasted and lightly rolled. This results in dark leaves that produce an amber liquor with light woody tones. A delicate and fine tea with hints of caramel.
This roasted wulong is the lightest and therefore is naturally complex and seductive. It will appeal to the greatest gourmets.
