Sloane Oolong Creme Tea
This signature oolong from the Wuyi Mountains in China is said to have come about when the moon fell in love with a comet. The comet passed her by, as comets will do. The moon cried milky tears which chilled the tea fields, withering the leaves and giving them a delicate creaminess.
This rich oolong tea is rolled into semi-balled form and opens into a beautiful long leaf when steeped.
When steeped as an iced tea, it very simply transforms into a remarkably refreshing thirst-quencher.
