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.

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.
