Concubine oolong, 'Gui Fei'
Oolong tea, Taiwan

Floral, citrus, apple ~ soft and creamy
This oolong belongs to the category of ‘bug bitten’ teas. Leaf hoppers are allowed to nibble on the leaves before harvest, initiating oxidation in the leaf while it is still on the plant. This fascinating process creates a magical transformation in the leaf that results in intense and sweet fruity and floral notes.

Gui Fei has a soft, creamy and supple mouthfeel and delicious notes of fresh flowers, lemon, apple skins and a hint of creamy milk caramel in the finish, thanks to a light roasting at the end of the leaf processing.

Preparation: Steep for 3 minutes at 85°. Three + infusions.
