Petrichor - Autumn batch oolong

Rs. 400.00

Stepping out from the regulars, a large leaf oolong made using a mix of three cultivars of Camelia Sinensis, Assamica Var. The dew droplets accumulated tender buds and leaves were plucked early morning. The leaves undergo a mix of indoor and outdoor withering followed by hand-shaping and natural oxidation for a certain period of time which develops the flavor of this tea. The buds and large tippy leaves produce a mellow tasting liquor with beautiful floral notes of autumn flowers.

Petrichor is an experimental batch oolong tea and is only available until the stock lasts. This tea is a collaborative work of Folklore Tea and our very talented tea artisan, Mr. Birinci from Naharkatia, Assam.

Season: Autumn 2020, Total quantity made: 2 kgs

Net weight : 50 grams, retail pack



In a distant land where the sun rises,

And a light mist decends after days of waiting.

Little pearls of Parijat bequeathed to the earth the night prior,

That is when I spread my wings of nostalgia.

Some say I smell like night jasmine,

Others say I smell like earth

I am a bit of both, I am Petrichor
