Golden Turtle, 'Huang Jin Gui'
Oolong tea, China

Creamy, floral, vegetal ~ smooth & velvety
This revitalising, premium-grade oolong comes from the famous tea producing region of Anxi in Fujian province, south eastern China. It is known in China as Huang Jin Gui, which translates to Golden Turtle.

At the end of processing, the leaves are tightly rolled into pellets; an action that releases the aromatic oils inside the leaf, naturally enhancing its flavour. These vibrant, jade-green pellets are a lot of fun to steep. The tiny balls unfurl into full leaves larger than would imagine, releasing a luxurious, creamy aroma. Golden Turtle is smooth and velvety with notes of cream, flowers and a hint of artichoke. 

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

Sizes: Golden Turtle comes in four sizes: a 3 gram single serve, then 20g, 50g and 100g pouches. Our leaves can all be steeped at least twice (often more), so while the 3g pouch is a single serve (150 mls - a standard tea cup size), it will give you two cups if you steep the leaves twice
