Buddha’s Hand Oolong
Shiding, Wenshan Taiwan
One of the rarest, almost extinct varietals of Oolong, a sub-varietal of Baochong. More full bodied, with a vegetal sweetness and gardenia fragrance. Extremely large leaves deserved of its namesake, this unusual varietal is being preserved through our efforts by purchasing the entire crop each season.
