Flight of Teas! October 8th & 9th

Listen up tea lovers, this weekend we are sampling an amazing flight of Oolong teas!
Ti Quan Yin, Fenghuang Shuixan, & Wuyi Cassia.

Ti Quan Yin is a lightly oxidized oolong that comes from Anxi in the Fujian Province of China. This tea holds wonderful floral notes, with hints of fruit as well. Moderately priced, Ti Quan Yin's rolled green leaves can be re-steeped several times! Enjoy this tea for an "oolong" time! 

This oolong has large brown leaves that are twisted with hints of russet. Fenghuang Shuixian has an intense peach flavor with a hint of spice and has become one of the most recommended Oolongs at the shop!

Wuyi Cassia, a cliff tea (Yancha) oolong grows in the Wu Yi mountains in the Northern Fujian province. Cassia translates to cinnamon, but don't be fooled  by the name! With the oolong's tight stripe shape and black bloom color, the brewed tea, itself a bright orange color, has toasty, complex flavors.
