From Taiwan Tea Crafts

Gui Fei oolong is a remarkably distinctive and unique Taiwanese tea in both flavour and stories to tell about! For the stories, read the Background Information found below, for some tasting references we could easily sum it up by honey, honey, and more honey! Wild honey that is, with it’s mineral and pastoral complexity of wild flower sweetness with roasted nuts and woodsy overtones. Honey in the colour, Honey in the texture. Honey in the soothing, sweet comforting taste! This new Lot 590 follows in the footsteps of our previous 543 and has undergone a 3 stage baking process by our in-house Tea Master with air-tight mellowing breaks of several weeks in between. This allows the flavours and aromas to stabilize and fully permeate the leaves. For those of you who liked our previous lots, this year’s bakings are one good notch above owing to the particularly generous teas provided by a good spring season! This is a wonderful tea for chilly winter afternoons or evenings.

I drank this one while working on some stuff today. I’m not a huge fan of roasted teas to begin with, but I find this to be one of the more enjoyable ones for me. Definitely keeping my eye on it for the future!

Second sample of our TTC order that we got around to trying. Steeped this one up at work last week as well. The first thing I noticed—and something I noticed throughout the entire session—was that it smelled kind of like kids’ bubblegum. A tropical fruit, sweet kind smell. This came through in the flavor as well, for me, as well.

The liquor steeped out nice and gold in this one, becoming more amber a few steeps in, and the texture was nice and smooth. This seems like it would taste really good cold.

I continued with leaves these into the following day, and they produced a second day steep that was sweet and cooling in the mouth, warming in the body and a very nice flavor to start the morning with.

Backlog.

This is a bug bitten oolong that shows a lot of different faces as its steeped. Lower temperatures, around 185-190, give a honey-like sweetness, notes of orchid, and a rich syrupy body. At higher temperatures, the tea has more fermentation flavor and the taste and aroma of spiced roasted nuts. As the tea progresses, the toasted nut flavor amplifies and it develops some cinnamon and woodsy notes.

Being a bug bitten tea, there are similarities between it and Oriental Beauty. But the floral honey and fruitiness of Gui Fei give it a greater depth of flavor. I would describe the flavor profile as a bug-bitten Dan Cong. Really enjoyed this lovely, soothing tea.
