Brewing happiness one cup at a time.

Hung Shui Oolong. Taiwan, Winter 2016

Weight

DESCRIPTION

A high-mountain oolong from Shan Lin Xi, Taiwan that comes roasted in traditional Dong Ding style. Since the tea is freshly roasted (October 2016), the roasted notes are still strong. But it balances well with the strong green body of the tea. Multiple steeps reveal notes of geraniums, apricots and chestnuts with a touch of smoke and burnt sugar.

We advise shorter steeps. If you let the tea cool off after steeping, you should be able to get a nice butteriness in the first few steeps.
