After three long years, our very special Guei Fei, or Concubine Tea, is back. We feel particularly fortunate to receive this special limited quantity harvest.
This bug bitten oolong hails from Lugu Township, the production area for the famous Taiwanese oolongs Dong Ding and Shan Lin Xi. The tea leaves are a 2nd Flush selection, with no exposure to pesticides, in order to welcome the little leaf hoppers which provide the sweet transformation of the leaf. The variation in color of the leaves shows a moderate level of oxidation. A beautiful amber color in the cup, this tea is wonderfully fragrant with aromas of flowers and herbs, warm honey, and cinnamon. It is beautifully balanced, full and silky smooth like sweet honey, followed by a nutty, gently astringent finish that is clean and crisp. This tea is sure to delight.
