From Stash Tea Company

This beautiful oolong tea has green tea flavor notes with superb floral taste and aroma. The plants selected for oolong tea production are chosen for their strong flowery aroma and beautiful large leaves. The extraordinary quality of Formosa Oolong Bay Jong comes only from Yilan county in northeast Taiwan where the soil and climate are perfect for this type of tea. The tea estates here are situated at an elevation of over 3500 feet. The Bay Jong tea is produced in very small quantities and is available only during the early stages of the harvest. Teas harvested later in the year do not produce the same wonderful flavor.

Formosa Bay Jong Oolong is light green in color and brews a pale yellow-green cup. The large leaves unfold during brewing to show off the top two leaves and bud. The liquor is very aromatic and slightly floral. The flavor is delicate with no hint of astringency or bitterness. This tea is best enjoyed during quiet times when you can really appreciate its intricate flavor and aroma.

This dry tea is very loose, indeed. Long, graceful leaves with only a bit of twist, accompanied by long sections of stems make this one difficult to measure without a scale. Ten second rinse before first steep. Notes of spring meadow, asparagus, and lemon. A sweet, creamy taste and mouthfeel made me sip again and again. This is a delicate tea which requires time. Some things cannot be had from the liquor — try sniffing the steaming leaves. Then, in the 2nd steep, open your senses for artichoke, lilac and new-mown hay!

The leaves look too beautiful to drink.
