Mim Classic Spring Oolong Tea

description

Darjeeling's Mim tea estate has garnered quite the reputation for producing delicate, flavorful oolongs which are now prized all over the world. This season’s oolong is light, fragrant, and brisk. Long, loosely-rolled leaves, which mark all good Indian oolongs, comprise this tea. It tastes of fresh, bitter-sweet flowers and tropical fruit which, together, feel quite refreshing without being too strong on the senses. Perfect those who enjoy light teas.
