Blend Story

Darjeeling Oolong is a complex creation that blends two distinctive, connoisseur grade teas. The innovation in blending aims reach an exceedingly ambitious goal: to appeal to the aromatic experience sought by both the Oolong and the Darjeeling connoisseur.

Oolong, often the tea of choice for seasoned experts, has orchid-like notes and particularly appeals to those who have a fondness for wines in the Bordeaux style. Darjeeling, known for its muscatel, wine-like character, is the pre-eminent tea for black tea connoisseurs.

The most difficult challenge is to create an infusion that tastes superior to Oolong or Darjeeling consumed on its own, without overwhelming the established and discerning traditional palate. The inherent complexity of the task is in attaining an optimal balance from two distinctively different teas from distinctly different countries and traditions, with widely different relative densities.

Only after multiple repeated trials and intricate calculations were we able to arrive at the final infusion. The result: a fuller, smoother blend with more nuanced, brighter notes.
