Details: This tea is made in northern Taiwan and is twisted (as opposed to the balled style.) It is done around June, later than other oolongs. The growers allow a leaf hopper (Jacobiasca formosana) to attack the tea leaves. The plants release a compound in self-defense that we find deliciously similar in flavor to peaches.
Dry Leaves: Light brown and green leaves.
Aroma: A wonderful aroma with notes of tropical fruits like guava, and stone fruits like peaches.
Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
Body: This can be quite a light bodied oolong.
Flavors: Subtle flavors of spring honey, fresh white peaches, and buttered toast.
Brewing Time: 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temp: 205° Fº
