Or Tea?™ 'Monkey Pinch' Premium tea - loose leaves
According to legend, Monkey Pinch (also known as Tie Guan Yin) is a rare species of Oolong tea growing only on remote cliffs. The story has it that monkeys were trained to pick them, pinch by pinch. It’s just a myth of course, but with our blend infused with the scent of peach, even a monkey would trade his beer for this delicious cup of Oolong tea!

Oolong Tea is one of the most time-consuming teas to create. It utilises all of the five basic steps, with rolling and oxidising done repeatedly. Oolong is a complex category because it's so broad: it's most simply described as half-way between green and black, and that's quite accurate. These teas are anywhere from 8% oxidised to 80% (measured roughly by looking at the amount of brown or red on the leaf while the tea is being made). The leaves are rolled, then allowed to rest and oxidise for a while. Then they'll be rolled again, then oxidised, over and over. Often, gentle heat is applied to slow the enzymes down a bit. Over the course of many hours (sometimes days), what is created is a beautiful layering or "painting" of aroma and flavour. Oolongs typically have much more complex flavour than Green or White teas, with very smooth, soft astringency and rich in floral or fruity flavours. Because of their smooth yet rich flavour profiles, Oolongs are ideal for those new to tea drinking.
Or Tea?™ is a premium specialty tea brand whose strongly Chinese heritage reflects that millennia-old tradition. In recreating this legendary drink as an art form, Or Tea?™ warmly welcomes a new generation of tea drinkers to enrich their lives with this ancient, yet contemporary brew.
