Product Description

Vietnam Oolong Imperial: from a great tradition of producing oolongs

For centuries there has been a tradition of indigenous tea production in Vietnam for a thousand years. Tea cultivation for the export market was established in the 1800s in what was then French Indo-China; the growing conditions in the southern mountainous areas being ideally warm and humid for producing oolongs. This Vietnam oolong Imperial is deep green and umber in colour. It is fairly tightly rolled and has a lightly oxidised style. The aroma is creamy and fragrant which in the cup is pale yellowy green. On the palate Vietnam Imperial Oolong is a beautifully sweet floral tea with citrus notes. A rewarding experience! Infuse for four minutes with water that has come off the boil.

Tea from Grey’s Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

Sourcing our tea

Vietnam oolong Imperial has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list. Packets and caddies have full-colour labels.
