Donyi Polo Special Spring Oolong Tea
A rare smooth oolong from the far east that is creamy and sweet.
The estate of Donyi Polo is fairly new and lies to the farthest corner of the country in the highlands of Arunachal. It makes limited batches of exceptional teas like this first flush oolong. A light, smooth liquor that is delightful with layered delicate notes and a creamy texture. The honeyed sweetness and rounded character of the liquor is remarkably similar to the famed Taiwanese oolong. Floral fragrances come by in the middle extending its richness and depth. The sweetness of the cup lingers on as you mull over its nuances. Steep the leaves again to enjoy more greener less floral characters.
Sweet, floral; marked by notes of honeysuckle, peony blossom, rosewood and subtle honeyed undertones

Fragrant; redolent of hyacinths in full bloom interlaced with mystical notes of patchouli and hint of steamed greens
Long, fully open, mix of broad dark and olive-green leaves
