Description

This Taiwanese Grand Cru comes from the Hsinchu region, specifically from Emei. It is made by the Hsu family.

This Bai Hao Oolong ("five-colour oolong", which refers to the appearence of the leaves), is an "Oriental Beauty". That is, it is a highly oxidised oolong and its leaves have been lightly bitten by a tiny insect known as Jacobiasca Formosana.The activity of this insect transforms the leaf's aromatic profile, giving rise to honeyed and fruity notes. The Oriental Beauty is a distinguished tea, and some types are extremely rare and very expensive. This one is perfect for trying the soft taste of the renowned Oriental Beauty.

A highly oxidised oolong characterised by honey, woody and fruity notes which develop against a smooth texture.
