$16.00 – $17.00
Oolong Tea, from the Chinese words for “Black Dragon,” is one of the rarest and costliest teas in the world. It is grown in mountainous areas, and treated with a labor-intensive, hand-crafted process.
Local Spicery’s Oolong tea, from the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian, China, is harvested in the late spring, sun-wilted, bruised, twisted into strands, partially oxidized, and air-dried and fired to obtain the traditional rich, smoky flavor that causes many people to place Oolong between the spectrum of green and black tea.
