From Norbu Tea

  • Varietal: Huang Jin Gui
  • Alternate Names: Royal Golden Turtle, Golden Osmanthus
  • Harvest: Fall, 2009
  • Growing Region: Anxi County, Fujian
  • Roast: Heat dried, no roasting
  • Vacuum Sealed into 50 gram portions
  • 10% off orders of 2 to 4 × 50g bags (100-200 g); 15% off orders of 5 or more x 50g bags (250g or more).

The name of this particular tea cultivar is Huang Jin Gui, which roughly translates to “Royal Golden Turtle.” (FYI: Some refer to this particular tea cultivar as “Golden Osmanthus” in English)

Huang Jin Gui has a distinctive smoothness and a more pronounced and lingering “Hui Gan” (aftertaste) than some high grade Tie Guan Yin oolongs from the same region. It posesses lovely & distinct floral overtones, but this tea is less overtly “Lilac-flowery” & bittersweet than the high grade Tie Guan Yin oolongs that we offer. A true treat that was harvested in late September, 2009. Not to be missed!

A lovely gongfu cha session with this tea today—sweet, floral, still, arm, sunny. Not as many infusions as the best TGYs, but still wonderful.

2nd and 3rd infusion…leaves keep expanding more and more. Drastically oversteeped…a little stronger but still quite good
