This Grand Cru is made in Emei, in Hsinchu County, Taiwan. It is a Dong Fang Mei Ren, which is a heavily oxidised oolong. It is produced from the Qing Xin Da Pan cultivar.
This delicious oolong reveals a whirlwind of floral, honeyed, vanilla and fruity fragrances, which develop against a round and smooth texture.
In order to bring out all the aromatic complexity of this tea, we recommend mutiple infusions multiples using the traditional Chinese Gong Fu Cha method.
