A balled oolong with medium oxidation. Fragrant and flavorful, the profile includes a sweet-tart roasted chestnut flavor and a refreshing, cooling mint finish. Because of the semi-ball style, this tea is best experienced over multiple short infusions, with its full complexity and depth unfurling along with the leaves.

Grown on an all-natural farm in the Halimun Mountains, located near Gunung Halimun-Salak National Park. PT Harendong's team uses all-natural methods to grow their teas, and they are are certified organic by IMO International according to EU, USDA/NOP, JAS and COR standards.
