Type: Oolong Tea 
Origin: Jian Ou County, Fujian China

Floral, Minerals, Sugarcane

Named after our favourite Indiana Jones sidekick, the Short Round Oolong tea is a sassy little Shui Xian tea cultivar grown and produced from the lesser known region of Jian Ou, Fujian. While not as punchy and robust as the Rock teas from the Wuyi Mountains, it still holds it's own with a light, mineral-like quality and sweet floral aromas.

Proper tea storage is super important. Improper storage leads to flat, flavourless and potentially weird tasting tea. So as a rule of thumb, keep your tea leaves in an airtight container (the less air inside the better) and away from heat, light, moisture and strong odours.
