From Teavana

Part of the Tea Prosperity Gift Set. This collection revisits tea from the Ancient Tea Routes. Inspired by the roads less traveled, these six precious teas are but a sampling of the rare and exotic teas treasured and traded through history. Teas included are: Fragrant Peaks (Wuling Mt., Hunan Province, China), Emperor’s Clouds and Mist (Nanyun Shan Mt., Anhui Province, China), Song Zhen Needle (Fujian Province, China), Oriental Beauty (Taiwan), Majestic Nepalese Peaks (Nepal), and Emerald Dan Cong Oolong (China). The description on the back of the beautiful gold coin inspired tin reads: “Originally made famous by Queen Elizabeth for being exceptionally beautiful in appearance and having the most exquisite taste of any oolong tea. This rare Formosan Oolong lives up to its reputation with a sweet and even-bodied cup that is a feast for the senses. Known as ‘Champagne Formosa’, this Taiwanese tea starts with a floral aroma and gives you a naturally sweet fruit and honey taste. Perfect anytime of the day.”

I thought it was only fair to come back to this, now that I have tried three other Bai Hao’s. It was a sip down and my fifth session with this tea. It has been a bit hit or miss and I really wish I could recreate the first time. This really did best with a 3 min steep, which is what I should have started off with today, but apparently I never learn. There was a fair bit of dust at the bottom of the tin and the leaves were on the choppier side. This yielded a more smokey, fiery experience, but there is also floral and sour notes. I’m lowering the rating, not that it makes a difference. No one else has tried it as its only available in a gift set with what I’ve come to realize are not so great teas. So, farewell my first Formosa, thank you for encouraging me to seek out the greater world of tea, beyond the tea wall.


The tea wall is a grand barrier for many people. Congratulations on transcending it!

This tea was too strong and bitter. I did not enjoy the taste honestly. It smells good, but does not have a pleasant taste when drinking. Very leafy.
