About this Tea
One of our favorite China oolongs, hand harvested in mid-summer. Bai Hao has large, tightly-twisted leaves with an abundance of silver tips. More fermented than many oolongs, it brings lovely peachy notes with a light liquor and aroma.

Ingredients
Full leaf China oolong tea from Fujian Province.

Today, I ventured out to Smith HQ to try their Bai Hao Oolong. Why? I dunno, it was a craving. The last three (or so) I tried, I liked. And it was the one thing of Smith’s I didn’t remember having. One of the blenders also finally cleared up an confusion about Taiwanese/Chinese Bai Haos for me that I greatly appreciated. Taste-wise, it possessed a smooth front, no mineral/chalk consistency, and a subtle, yam-like sweetness to the body and finish. By golly, I liked this Bai Hao.

You are so lucky to live in Oregon — Stash and Smith! (Smith started out at Stash.)

I saw some Smith in my local big-box bookstore over Christmas but couldn’t justify buying the Bungalow when I already had a quarter pound of Darjeeling in the house. Now, of course, the selection of Smith is long gone. Wasn’t a great selection — Bungalow, Fez, and Chamomile — but if the Bai Hoo Oolong had been there, I’d’ve sold part of my soul to try some.

BAI HAO. Sorry about that.

I like the Fez. Don’t quite recall the Bungalow, but I really like the Kandy blend. The Bai Hao was quite worth it.

And I like Bai Hoo…sounds celebratory. ;-P
