Eco-Cha Tea Club: Award Winning Alishan High Mountain Oolong Tea Tasting Notes

This combination of more oxidized leaves with a very slight roasting offers a more balanced flavor profile that transforms the fresh green quality into a sweeter, softer character that is more complex and more substantial.
