Mingled with the scent of ripe mangoes, this refreshing Tung Ting oolong yields a sweet and delicate cup. Using the natural essential oil of Hawaiian mango, our blenders pair a low-fermentation oolong (more green character than black oxidized) to balance out the sweetness and tartness of the fruit.
Oolong tea, mango flavor.
Oolong teas undergo a partial oxidation, which can vary from 10-80% depending on the style of tea in each region to the wishes of the tea maker. This broad oxidation range brings a remarkable number of delicious teas with a range of styles and flavours. Our Mango Oolong is lightly-oxidized and hence on the fruity and aromatic side.
The original name for oolong - wulong - translates into Dark or Black Dragon, a title once bestowed on the large, bulky dark tea leaves from the Wuyi Shan in China. There is also a possibility that the name was given in honour of the teas shaped to resemble the silhouette of the mystical Chinese dragon.
