In stock: 34

Origin: Indonesia


Our bold and distinct 99% Oxidized Purple Oolong is a wonderful tea tasting experience! The tea was grown in Indonesia, and is a rare treat from this region. The highly oxidized tea produces solid flavors of cinnamon, coffee, musk and amber, with undertones of rich earthiness; rare to find in a good tea! While the leaves are a deep purple, the brew produced is a caramel liquid that is thick and rich. This particular oolong is perfect for multiple infusions, because as is the case with any good tea, the flavors develop and become more complex with each steeping. While it is a strong oolong, much bolder than less oxidized tea, true enthusiasts will enjoy the complex flavors provided in multiple steeps!

10/10 would recommend. The oxidation process and terroir of this tea give it a rich, complex and unique flavor that is highly appealing.

I first rinsed my tea (about 1 tsp) with hot water (about 8 oz.) for about 30 sec. and threw the water, then steeped it about 3 minutes in a mug w/strainer. I found the taste to be rich, deep, earthy and slightly salty, and I was amazed at how smooth it was. A few hours later, I made my 2nd infusion, and steeped it a bit longer, maybe 4-5 minutes. It was richer, smoother and I got the roasted flavor more intensely, almost smoky. My 3rd infusion, steeped about 8 minutes, was still very good, so I went for a 4th one!
