A green tea made from the first flush of a Taiwan wulong cultivar grown in the mountains of the Huangshan UNESCO World Heritage Site to the strictest organic standard, Tea Hong’s Organic Spring has a mild and yet flavorful character that changes according to how it is infused and the state of the drinker. This non-demanding fluidity makes this tea a great choice for the Zen sitter and the hard thinker, to whom discovery is a transcendence.
Biscuity aroma accented with honey and ripen nectarine and tones of roasted nut on an undertone of kombu. Silky texture carrying a malty infusion with salt and herbal tinkles. Undertones of butter and mung beans. Definitive yet light bitter notes. Sweet aftertaste at the throat.
Because of its mild taste character, this tea is suitable for infusing using many different approaches and infusion parameters. For its optimum taste profile and silkier texture, 2 g per 100 ml of water at 90°C in a smaller vessel for 5 minutes.
To us, offering the extremely rare Shiguping Wulong is not a challenge enough. We think we should give you the best of its kind. Trekking further deep into the mountain above the elusive main village of Shiguping we found the patch of land which the locals called Liao-xi-ya, where it all began. The tea is softer, yet fuller and even more complex than that in the main village. The very original Shiguping Wulong*, as highly acclaimed by the man who devoted all of his life in advocating oolongs of Phoenix, the 74 years-old tea specialist Huang Bozi.
For people who like classic style Phoenix but desire something more mellow than Honey Orchid, Orchid Gratus offers a taste that is as full-bodied. It is balanced with as subtle a warm and slightly sweet aroma. Not only is this a great choice for the veteran tea connoisseur who seeks peace in the cup, but is also a bridge between softer oolongs and the more vibrant world of taste in Fenghuang Dancong.
A very special tea bush — Camellia sinensis cultivar Shidaye — makes this unique looking tea. Each and every tediously selected pluck is carefully flattened between meshes during the slow baking process. We select only the best of these top grades for the fresh, cooling and cleansing sensations that complete this tea’s purpose in addition to being wonderful to look at.
Through years of researches a fine cultivar carrying the best traits of all the finest Wuyi natural cultivars is now mature and producing. Introducing Tea Hong’s Sacred Lily. Perhaps the most beautiful of all Wuyi oolongs. Grown deep in the steep mountains away from the touristy spots and masterfully processed for subtlety, complexity, and smoothness in taste. A tea that no true oolong connoisseur should miss.
