Peach Fragrance Oolong

Province:
Type:
Tagline:

Peach Fragrance –Tao Ren Xiang – is picked from a single tree on a farm near WuDong Mountain in the Fenghuang area of  Guangdong Province.  The Chao An area, where this tea was grown, is famous for its Dan Cong style Oolongs.  These teas have for centuries been recognized and classed as “Tribute Teas” to be presented each season to the Emperor for his enjoyment. 

Why we selected this lot.  This lot was hand crafted.  It is made by Mr. Lin Ze, who teaches school in the town and farms tea with his family.  We have purchased teas from Lin Ze for over 16 years, each year purchasing 2-3 of these special, small lots each offering a traditional & natural flavor brought forth in the leaf.  We offer them to you in recognition of the skill in making these teas.       

Interesting facts about this lot. The tea is harvested from trees grown at an elevation of approximately 900-1000 meters.  The trees send their roots deep into the soils to tap spring water for nourishment.  The terrier is ideal for this tea with soils, water and climate combining to create a world-class tea.  Note the bright, reddish-green leaf appearance.  

Taste profile. In steeping, the greener side coloration of the leaf will become more apparent.  This tea has a brief note of tanginess, then moves to a naturally sweet, honey-like liquor offering hints of almond as a result of the wood-charcoal firing process.   A rare Dong Cong style oolong that will intoxicate!   

Brewing suggestions.  It will steep multiple times as the leaves open slowly.  For 8-12 ounces of water, use 3-4 grams of leaf (a tablespoon).  Use boiling water and rinse the leaves briefly to awaken them.  Then steep the leaves briefly, about 1 - 1.5 minutes and taste.  The first steep will be for aroma, in the second steep the leaves will begin to open and release their wonderful flavors.  Steep the leaves 5-7 times.
