Persistent aromas of honey, ripe peaches, apricots and nectarines. A mildly gauzy body gives way to the gentle aftertaste of roasted barley and lingering aromas of ripe pitted fruits.
Dating back to over 900 years ago, when its ancestor's leaves were offered as an imperial tribute to the Song Dynasty. A true gift. An ideal connoisseur's tea. Buttery and rich, with caramel and floral notes and a distinctively fruity, woodsy character.

Pairing Notes—Excellent with red meat, but versatile enough to pair with poultry and fish.
Ingredients—Oolong tea from Guangdong, China
