SHANGRI-LA OOLONG

£8.00

Shangri- la Oolong is an extra special tea from Nepal; a cross between a light black tea and a dark roasted oolong.  

It’s part of an exciting new wave of teas to come out of Nepal in recent years that’s inspired by tea making practices in China and Taiwan.  It brews a slightly spicy peppery cup with plum and honey notes.

Made by the Kanchanjangha Tea Estate in the Eastern Nepali Himalayas. Oolongs are a relatively new generation of teas in South Asia, combining traditional regional practices with inspiration from China and Taiwan.

This particular tea is a unique creation, a cross between a light black tea and a dark roasted Chinese oolong. It makes a spicy full-bodied cup with biscuity and peppery aromas. Flavours of plums, baked goods and honey develop over multiple infusions.

Treat yourself or the tea lover in your life.

Buy it, try it, love it!

I was told that the second brew of an Oolong tea is always better than the first brew.

WRONG! This Oolong is excellent from the very first sip.

A stonking brew. Just love it! So full of flavour - nutty, fruity, smoky.

It is a purely decandent brew. When drinking it, I feel I should be sitting in a huge leather chair, in front of a roaring log fire, in an oak paneled room in a house by a Loch, with a sleeping dog at feet.

Truth be told, I'm far from that image, although there is a Loch within walking distance!

My first oolong and it's lovely

This is my first oolong tea that I've tried so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. The taste and the scent reminded me of roasted grains and nuts, something like dark rye bread, which reminds me of home and is comforting.
