    • Da YeTea Varietal

    Da Ye Oolong (大叶乌龙) refers to the huge leaves that make this varietal distinctive. The larger leaves create new challenges and opportunities in finishing, requiring a longer withering and shaking process to evenly disperse the moisture in the stem and bring out the rich fruity aromatics unique to this tea. Finished as a traditional Anxi oolong, notes of ripe strawberry, a deep woody texture and lingering vanilla florals make this an unforgettable tea.


  • 'The process of making oolong is bringing the tea back and forth between withered and alive... the process of bringing it back from the brink eliminates bitterness and astringency'
