New Mexico Tea Company
  • Spoon 1 tsp Per Cup

Red Oolong has a medium roast giving it its chocolaty and fruity aroma and its sweet taste.

Red oolong is a variety unique to the southeastern county of Taitung, home to one of the youngest tea-making regions in Taiwan. Red Oolong is considered a "new tea" and its process was born in 2008 by the Tea Research and Extension Station and a small group of farmers in Taiwan. The group was focused on developing a unique, quality tea. Red Oolong's process, allows the tea to be more forgiving of fluctuations in the raw product and a more consistent flavor. Its defining characteristic is its oxidation time, the longest of any oolongs. Red Oolongs are oxidized to 65 to 75%. Just as important as the oxidation level is the roasting time which gives it its roasted chocolaty flavor.

Hand-picked, natural farming methods

A unique oolong from Taiwan. Tastes very similar to GABA oolong in my opinion. Taste of stone fruit but can’t decide if more peach or plumb. A nice change from the floral/grassy oolongs I’ve had from Taiwan.
