Brilliant crisp days and the long cool nights of autumn in Ilam produce this distinctive oolong. The dark, tightly rolled black pearls unfurl to create a rich amber liquor. This is a classic Nepalese oolong, oxidized to bring out the complex flavors of dried apricots, honey and malt. A sweet, smooth and mellow cup.
One heaping teaspoon of tea per 8 ounce cup. Cool boiling water for 2 minutes, then steep tea 2 - 3 minutes. Additional Steeping: One steeping for 2 - 3 minutes.
