Our exclusive Pouchong from Taiwan took a two star gold award at the latest Guild of Fine Food Awards. The producer, Mr Xu, was delighted and said ‘Two stars, only?’
This is one of our favourite teas and completely exclusive to Canton Tea Co. Grown high on the slopes of WenShan, Taipei county, by farmer Xu and his family, this award-winning Pouchong is incredibly light and refreshing with smooth floral notes and a sweet apricot finish. The locals call it a green tea, but it is actually a very lightly oxidised oolong. The big twisted leaves produce a bright yellow/green liquor that is creamy soft and delicious.
Farmer Xu’s comments
“Every year we enter our Pouchong in the big tea competition Every year we win the top prizes!”
