From Tealet

PT Harendong, Grower

This unique Oolong tea is grown in the Banten region of Indonesia. It’s fruity, floral aroma is not like any other Oolong. Due to its high degree of fermentation the tea is reminiscent of a Black Tea. The dry leaves and brewed liquor have vegetative overtones which will connect you its source.

The tea has a sharp floral flavor with a smooth finish. Experience the full depth of this tea over multiple infusions. The first infusion provides an earthly astringency, but later infusions bring on more fruity notes.

HOW TO BREW
Use 2 grams (1/2 tablespoon dried tea leaves) for 8 fl. oz. water in your favorite teapot or infuser (use bottled drinking water for best flavor, let boil and sit to cool slightly for 2-3 minutes). Steep for 2-3 minutes or for a shorter period of time if you would like to taste the subtle flavors of the tea. Leaves may be infused at least 3 times.

Many thanks to TheLastDodo. I was lucky enough to pick this up in her stash sale. She sent me a lot of samples too (and even some tea candy!) so I’m super excited to try all this. It’s been awhile since I had a honey oolong, and I’d almost forgotten how amazing they are. This one is particularly delicious. Really high quality leaf and great natural honey notes, along with an interesting nuttiness that I haven’t encountered before in this type of tea. I’m not getting much scent dry, but once steeped, it smells lovely.

Wow, a honey oolong? Sounds delish!

Tamarindel

Yes, there are quite a few Taiwanese oolongs that have honey notes, but this is the first one I’ve encountered that was so honeyish they decided to put it in the name :) It’s really great!

Is it because of the leafhoppers?

Tamarindel

Mmm, maybe? I can’t say I’ve done a lot of research into it, I just tried several Taiwanese oolongs and noticed they had this honey note in common.
