Thurbo Exotic Summer Oolong Tea

description

Clonal teas from the Thurbo estate are always a treat but this oolong made us go wow! Its evidently been made with care and precision and consequently is as perfect as a tea can be. There is so much to enjoy in it a wide range of flavors, textures, and sensations. Its everything we love in a good Darjeeling clonal.
