Honey Aroma

Oolong tea, Taiwan

Cream, honey, nut, flowers ~ soft & smooth
This Spring 2021 harvest oolong is grown near Mingjian township, Nantou County, in central Taiwan and belongs to the category of ‘bug bitten’ teas. The farmers allow little leaf hoppers to nibble on the leaves before harvest, initiating a biological change in the leaf while it is still on the plant, resulting in a sweeter flavour. After harvest, the leaves are lightly oxidised and roasted.

Honey Aroma infuses into a light-bodied tea with a soft and smooth mouthfeel. It has gentle notes of cream and honey, a hint of roasted nut and a lingering floral aftertaste.
