Autumn is in full swing, adding a little bit of the flavors of it in our cup is bound to be on your list this season (by the way they are all good for winter too). Each tea on our list was picked for its warmth and delicious toasty notes. Also they go great with a slice of apple or pumpkin pie. So they will be perfect after Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends. Try one or all of them, your taste buds will thank you.
Shuei Xian Oolong
This lovely oolong is from Fujian Province in China in the Wuyi region. This area is known for its “rock” oolongs. All of which have been roasted to various degrees which comes out in the cup. It is definitely a tea you will love to have on hand.
Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong
This is a very unique tea that is best enjoyed on a rainy day. It is made from very special trees in China on Phoenix Mountain in Guangdong Province. It tastes fruity and the aroma and flavor stays even after many infusions. It’s very much a sought after tea by tea enthusiasts and worth every sip.
Golden Monkey Black (Red)
First off this is my favorite tea to pair with cookies or any type of pastry. It’s just a pair that makes your taste buds sing. This is because it is not astringent like most other black teas and tastes best plain. It is a classic and on the list of top 10 teas of China. It is from Yunnan Province the home of many of the teas on the market from China. It’s a little bit of history in your cup that you are bound to love.
Dong Ding Oolong
Just had to include a classic Taiwanese Oolong on this list. With its baked stone fruit notes it can very well replace your dessert (or be paired with one if you so desire). With its balled style it is bound to give you many infusions over the full course of your me time.
These three are just a few of many out there that feel like you have fall in your cup. A good way to find other is to look for ones that have been roasted (yumm).
