High Mountain decaffeinated Oolong Tea is synonymous with the finest Oolong teas in the world. It is a semi-fermented tea that contains all the benefits of green tea, but does not have its grassy taste or the tannins present in black tea. The very brief fermentation process also creates the subtle fragrances and flavors that distinguish this tea from all other varieties. The cultivation and appreciation of High Mountain Oolong is somewhat similar to fine wine, with each plantation and each mountain producing its own unique bouquet of flavors, and each year’s harvest yielding its own special character.
