Brewing Guide:
We recommend using purple clay or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Fill the teapot 2 grams (1-2 teaspoons) tea leaves for every 225ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 95°c (203°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.

 

There is something ineffable about this tea that makes you want to drink more and more and more. The tea is a light to medium roast, with a more floral and buttery character than honey or caramel. It doesnt knock ones socks off but it is pleasant and easy to drink. I like it a lot for the price.

This tea is good quality. It has one stem with 2 or 3 leaves. I believed it is hand picked oolong tea. Highly recommended.

I drink everything from white, green, oolong and black teas with the occasional Pu-Erh. I enjoy all of them, but once I tried this tea it instantly became my favorite. It has the best qualities of green tea mixed with my favorite of fine black teas, and none of the negatives. It is much more towards green tea and as it is only lightly oxidized. Taste is has a floral and sweet mix with what tastes like honeysuckle and some type of berry to me.
