Description

This exceptional Grand Cru is harvested at 1,250 meters on the slopes of Mae Salong, in the Chiang Rairegion of Thailand. At her estate, Ms. Ming grows tea plants including Jinxuan and Si Ji Chun to produceOolongs in the Taiwanese tradition. Her teas combine Taiwanese expertise with a Thai terroir whosegrowing conditions are ideal for plants. Made from Qin Xin cultivars, this heavily oxidized Oolong isinspired by the processing method used for Dong Fang Mei Ren, better known as Oriental Beauty.

Just like Oriental Beauty, this tea is made from leaves that were bitten by an insect related to the Paolibefore being plucked.

The little insect makes a big difference in the tea, since its bites alter the chemicalstructure of the leaves, making their aromatic notes much more intense and complex.

A magnificent oolong that unfurls fruity and highly floral notes with a hint of honey supported by anelegant oily texture. This superb tea rekindles the magic of an Oriental Beauty from an unusual terroir.This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.
