Description: There are good teas, there are great teas, and there are, once in a while, amazing teas that make you feel good to be alive. And this Guei Fei oolong easily belongs to the last category!

It's not all bad when bugs feast on tea leaves - people have know this for a long time. That's how we have Oriental Beauty (Bai Hao) oolong. However, the search of great Bai Hao oolong in recent years have been quite discouraging - not only prices keep going up, but the quality is mostly hit-and-miss. Taste becomes thinner, lighter, and less brewing durability.

This tea offers not just rich and complex honey-aroma on the nose, fresh and smooth taste, sweet tannins with lovely texture, but hardworking-natured durability! Easily count to 6 steepings and still pump out honey/floral juice.

One brewing tip: just like for all summer oolongs such as Bai Hao, use a less-than-boiling water (~85-90deg C) to control the tannins and bitterness.

10% off for 150g order!
