We are so excited about this tea and judging by the repeat buys, our customers are too! The first reaction that people have when they smell an oolong of this quality is that there must be something added to make it smell so creamy, so buttery with hints of coconut, hard toffee candy along with the classic floral undertone present in so many high-end Taiwanese oolongs. But nope, nothing here but top-quality tea leaf, grown in just the right place at the perfect altitude. This is tea art. The flavor lies so fully over the entire tongue reminding the drinker of tropical, creamy coconut milk, slightly sweet and stunning in its earlier infusions and in later steepings it presents with lilac and gardenia, and good green Taiwanese oolong flavor. Such a wonderfully complex tea, this one is sure to please most any tea drinker. And if they weren’t a tea drinker to begin with, they will be after trying this!
You’ll swear you are indulging in some fancy high-calorie dessert. Not so, however! This is ZERO calories, zero additives and will actually help you boost your metabolism. Serve this on its own. Would be terrific with fresh fruit. I’m thinking peaches sprinkled with coconut flakes and a little maple syrup.
We highly recommend doing one rinse of 5-10 seconds (at 195 degrees) and then beginning with 15-20 second infusions for a bit before slowly increasing steeping time. It is not unusual to get 15-18 steepings out of this tea when prepared gongfu cha style.
