Singbulli Special Summer Oolong Tea

description

Another fine Darjeeling estate that has added the oolong to its repertoire is Singbulli. This one, made from good summer flush tea, tends towards the black tea, being more oxidized. Tree fruit and nutty notes are a standout feature. It may be better enjoyed by a connoisseur rather than a beginner to these teas.
