Whim Oolong

205 kr

The world of oolongs is a fascinating world. If you haven’t tasted any oolongs in your life, now it’s time to change that! Oolongs have a special processing method, where the applied amount of oxidation is the key factor – the more they are oxidized the closer they are to black tea flavors. The less oxidation, the closer they are to green tea flavors. 

This Whim Oolong is a perfect way to start: processed in a way that is easy for your mouth to find all the different aromas, not being too light or too strong. The aromas are very rich and well-balanced, creating a very special and interesting cup of oolong tea!
