who hoo for WUYI??? WU Yi Tea from the Source..

how many of you enjoyed your Christmas tea treats? i was more than blessed by one who had given me many different teas i have yet to try, including this one called WU YI.

it comes in a satin bag in a box that is crimson red, stating that this tea was made from the old tradition of picking the only two top leaves of the tea plant…and it makes this product exclusive by restriction purchase of one box/customer/month .

to my dismay, the internet only conveys look a likes that wildly pronounce it’s a “diet” tea. i dunno. i very much like it, not for the claim of losing weight [where this box doesn’t claim that at all, it is simply just tea], but it’s a very clean taste all through. i believe it’s an oolong, but again, this company doesn’t have a pronounced website, i only find the gimmick ones of girls losing weight.

If anyone can tell me more about this wu yi tea, and it’s real origins…that would be great!!!

from my cup to yours,
MySpecialTea :)

I don’t have much experience with Wuyi tea, but found this documentary to be a good learning experience. http://teamasters.blogspot.com/2011/11/wu-yi-tea-documentary.html

But in short, you have an oolong tea from the Wuyi mountains, China. There are a lot of different Wuyi teas, so I cannot tell you which one was gifted.
