Taiwan Honey Black Tea Oolong is produced from tea leaves bitten by leafhoppers. The biting process is known as salivating when the insects insert a small amount of saliva into the leaves. Although the affected leaves curl downwards, the saliva is transformed into pleasant honey flavor when roasting. To attract leafhoppers, the tea plantations require to be pesticide free. You can be sure that the tea is all natural!

Second infusion of the leaves …

still very honey-esque… the heavy caramel-y notes are lighter this time around. Still there, just not quite as pronounced. The same is true for the chocolate-y notes: still there, just lighter in flavor.

This lighter presentation of the previously strong, forward notes allow for more exploration of the other flavors within the tea. The fruit notes taste much more peach-y, with lovely notes of plum. Sweet with hints of sour for contrast, but definitely more sweet than sour. The floral notes are still not really strong here, but I don’t usually get strong notes of flower with a darker Oolong anyway, so I’m not disappointed by the lack of flower here. I taste very vague, faint notes if I slurp. I also taste more chocolate if I slurp, so slurping here is very much encouraged!

A tea that is delightfully good through two infusions.

GAH! You are making my shopping list so long! =) I really appreciate the separate tasting note for the second infusion. Sometimes, the flavour is so different that it’s warranted.

sipdown! i brewed this one alongside the other honey oolong from this company to be able to compare them in actuality rather than from memory… THIS ONE WINS. oh man…this has got the sweetness of the other one but there really is this caramely taste that accompanies this one. I actually would consider putting this in my cupboard… no idea how hard it is to get these teas here but i’ll have to look into it. thank you nofars and terri! yum!

Another Sipdown, this one thanks to NofarS.
This is SO delicious! It’s one of those leafhopper teas, with the sweet honey taste, so smooth & sweet, with a hint of coriander.
