From Tribute Tea Company

With a comparatively short history of production, Honey Oolong gained popularity following the devastating 1999 Taiwan earthquake.

Following the destruction, many tea farmers neglected their crops to rebuild their homes, allowing green leafhoppers to feast on treasured tea plants. The tea plants fought back, however, causing chemical transformations in the leaf, which increased polyphenolic content and tannins. Tea lovers found the result to be delightful, and contrary to traditional wisdom of harvesting the finest leaves the spring, Gui Fei is harvest in the summer (after “the bug bite”).

After a medium oxidation and a light roasting, this fragrant tea leaf reveals aromas of butter, caramel, and cinnamon. A truly unique flavor bouquet includes wild honey and roasted nuts…

Notes: wild honey, Indian spice, cinnamon, pecan

Infusion: 200ºF / 93ºC for 1-2 minutes

Origin: Dong Ding, Nantou County, Taiwan
