This fresh spring harvest is amazing! I have so many varieties of Oolong, but I can't stop drinking this one everyday!
Ever inventive, skilled grafting of a high-grade Tieguanyin oolong varietal with the early-spring harvest Huang Jin Gui cultivar created this aromatic and luscious offering - Golden Jade. The successful graft and propagation of this tea in the not too distant past has resulted in the wonderful taste of a Tieguanyin earlier in the spring season. Lot #14.
Lot Notes. The leaf is medium size, beautifully shaped and it offers a very fresh & pleasing aroma. Leaf color is bright green as it is low oxidized. The tea maker is the same supplier from whom we purchase our various Tieguanyin oolongs.
Tea Facts. This tea is a hybrid - created by grafting the roots of one varietal with the stem and leaves of another. This lot was grown in the AnXi Region of Fujian Province. Farm is located at about 800 meters. Lot was harvested in April 2020
Tasting Notes. Made with a deft hand - the natural aroma of the Tieguanyin varietal has been well preserved and is pronounced. Cups to a full-body that is naturally floral and lush, delivering a wonderful note that will linger. Tea is slow to overstep, maintaining a very balanced cup that is perhaps a bit less buttery and more naturally flavored than traditional Tieguanyins.
Brewing Suggestions. Good water is paramount. Bring it to a boil. We suggest 3-4 grams per 6-8 ounces of water. Rinse the leaves briefly, pour this water off and re-infuse and steep for 2 minutes and taste. The leaves can steep for longer periods for more varied flavors. These leaves will steep multiple times. It is good value oolong and great for sharing with friends and guests.
