Extraordinary Oolong + Port Tea

Aromas of old old rum or sherry with sultanas. Also hints of sticky tannins attached to the wall of the barrel. Notes also of Pedro Ximenez wine. Some hints of wild berries, tangy tamarind or dried apricots, in aftertaste. A delicious tea which brings back memories of long after-dinner meals and of many travels

I was sent a sample of Pipacha Oolong, and was so glad to have a chance to try it. It is utterly delicious, and I have been buying it ever since. The taste is both buttery and grassy I would say, with just a hint of a floral note, mellow yet with a lot of depth. Rare Tea oolongs are by far the best I have ever tried.

Beyond Rare

This tea is a truly complex enigma. How can it taste rich and light? Incredibly warming, with cocoa and cigar box flavours on the first brew, underpinned by a deep, red fruit resonance. Further brews reveal the Oolong's **** bright, green vegetal natural characteristics which, in combination with the port barrel aged notes give a hint of rhubarb. Sublime, unique and heartwarming.

Tasting Notes

Dried fruits and honey with an elegant port wine nose and finish.


Use 2g of tea per 150ml of water.


For the optimum infusion use 90°C (194°F) water.


Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this tea at three times.  With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

38p per cup based on 2g of tea per 150ml of water and 3 infusions.


Matured in Port Barrels
