Flavor Profile

Almond butter, wild hay, and maple sap.

Oolong tea · low oxidation 

Known as the Stolen Cultivar, is a lighter style of oolong tea.

#2028 was created by Taiwan’s Tea R&D (TRES) Center and its strong immunity to bugs and diseases makes it an apt candidate for organic tea making. Though its official release was canceled due to jejune politics, a few lucky tea farmers managed to get their hands on it.

The tea tastes like maple and almond butter and smells like a field of wildflowers. It pairs beautifully with a light afternoon snack. It's also known as the "milk oolong cousin".
