This tea is good however not what I was expecting
Bai Ji Guan is also known as “white Cox comb” because it is the only wu yi oolong with yellow almost white leaves. They usually pick it when it is young and tender.
Bai Ji Guan is usually light sweet and complex with the flavor profile of honey suckle balanced with fleeting tannins. This
Bai Ji Guan seems to have been composed of older more mature leaves. Theas leaves have been heavily roasted in the older more traditional Fijian style. The taste is rich dark Smokey with fleeting hints of sweetness the complete opposite of the
Bai Ji Guan I am us to. Maby the producers thought it would be interesting to process the tea this way. If that’s the case they were right this tea is an interesting addition to my collection however ill take the younger lighter collard less roasted leaves over these any day.
I very much enjoyed my sample and have re-ordered this tea. An otherwise normal comment, except for the fact I dont generally like wuyi oolongs. TeaCuppa has managed to change my mind about that on serveral ocassions, this being one of them. Very different from most, this one is deeply roasted, full bodied, yet sweet and fruity. A very enjoyable wuyi for those, like me, who arent big wuyi drinkers.
