More About Amber Autumn Oolong
Amber Autumn Oolong is an example of a superior quality oolong tea produced in Nepal. This tea is more heavily oxidized than most oolong teas, which turns the tea leaves a darker color, and gives the brewed tea a fuller body. Amber Autumn Oolong is a delicious, aromatic tea with notes of malt, caramel, and stone fruit.
While tea has traditionally been grown and cultivated in countries like India and China, the relatively small nation of Nepal is making a name for itself as a producer of premium teas. Stretching across Nepal, India, China, Bhutan, and Pakistan, the Himalayan mountain range is home to some of the most famous tea growing regions in the world, including Darjeeling province in India and Yunnan province in China, as well as the areas where our Nepali teas are grown and harvested. A rocky landscape of varying altitudes, these mountains are an ideal growing environment for tea, with the unique terroir and high elevation giving teas grown in these regions a distinctive rich, slightly floral character.
Our Amber Autumn Oolong is a great example of a more fully oxidized oolong. This means that it is closer in character to a black tea than to a green tea. Amber Autumn Oolong has a full, rich body, with malty and carmel-y notes. While darker than many oolongs, Amber Autumn is still lighter than a black tea, with a mellow sweetness that’s best enjoyed on its own, without any milk or sweetener.
