Discover the World of Oolong Tea
Sitting between black and green tea, oolong tea mightn’t be as far-famed as its fellow Camellia sinensis family, yet it packs a punch in terms of variety and flavour.
During the workshop, participants will be guided through by BASAO’s tea sommelier team to appreciate 3 types of oolong teas from The Mainland and Taiwan, which represent the character from its origin.
