Cultivar : Huang Jing oolong

Description: 2006 was the first year we introduced Huan Jing )Golden) oolong on Hou De. After several years' absence, we are so glad it is coming back for 2014!

Have you seen a oolong that has golden-colored steams and yellow-green mark around the midrib veins on leaves like a birthmark? Please note when you type "golden oolong" in search engines, you may find some beverages or oolongs that have the same name. The real Huan Jing Oolong is Not a beverage, nor does it a oolong made of other cultivars! It is itself a unique oolong cultivar!

Huan Jing Oolong is a naturally occurred oolong cultivar, like Si Ji, from parent of, maybe, wuyi and ching-shin oolongs. It was first found in Nantou in 80's. The striking beauty and rich orchidy/sweet aroma attracted people's attention. But the relatively weak growing strength and the lacking of knowledge/experience to properly process it soon dissuaded people from trying it. Even until now, it can only be found in a few plantations in Zhu Shan and Hou Dong Ding in NanT Tou county.

The taste is richly sweet and thick. It almost reminds me a touch of Feng Huang Dan Cong, with its sweetness and fragrance, but it also gives a more solid and robust feeling. Clear and bring liquor of, what else, golden color. Very durable, easily last more than 5 steepings.

Each order (4oz!)is vacuum-packed.

The evidence of "hand-harvested" can be clearly seen in the larger image: only the hand-harvested teas would unfurl to a complete "bud-leaves-stem" system.
