Hairy Crab Oolong green-style oolong name for the fine hairs on the backsides of leaves and as the leaf unfurls it resembles claw shapes. It is a highly floral tea grown in AnXi Region. Traditionally processed and lightly oxidized- leaves are rolled with a mix of light and dark green leaves. Taste is delicious peach-like notes not tasting astringent. Serve hot or iced. This is a locally imported tea from Tacoma Trading Co.
A succulent tea especially palatable for those that do not enjoy the sharpness typical of green teas. Oolong tea is unique because of its partial fermentation which produces a diverse arrangement of both off-green and black leaves. This tea is tasty, full bodied, with a mildly smooth aftertaste. Highly recommended to those that enjoy the health benefits of green tea but have a hard time with its lingering, semi bitter taste. These are sure to appeal to the senses of both the black tea lover and the green tea lover.
