Description

The Azuma family’s oolong tea is made with specific cultivars from single fields. Without using pesticides, small insects called unka populate the field in the early summer and damage the leaves in a way that turns into a delicious flavor when the leaves are withered into oolong tea. The process is similar to that seen in the Taiwanese oolong called Oriental Beauty.
