This exotic “Champagne of Tea” is probably the most fascinating of all the oolong teas. Its rich taste & sweet, smooth honey aroma gives it a unique flavor, not unlike a fine mellow, black tea.Its processing is characterized by heavy oxidation (60% to 70%) and heavy withering (13% to 25%). The oxidation process is initiated before the leaves are plucked by nature’s assistance in the form of small insects biting the tender leaves. See this article in T Ching for more information on this amazing tea.

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this Oolong – it’s lovely – or should I say, it’s a beauty?
It’s pleasantly sweet. The first cup (infusions 1 and 2, following a quick rinse) has a sweet and sour kind of fruit taste – it’s very savory, almost like a soup. Very enjoyable and satisfying.
With subsequent infusions, I find that the sour tones soften quite a bit, while a honey-esque tone emerges. The flavors become more seamless with each subsequent infusion, and it becomes very soothing to drink… very comforting.
