From the Jia Yi area of Taiwan, in the southwest, that is the gateway to Alishan, our Honey Oolong has a complexity and depth rarely encountered in teas. It is grown from the cultivar Qing Xin at an elevation of 1200-1300m and is known in Chinese as mi xiang or "honey fragrant" This batch is from a winter crop. The dried tea leaf is tightly rolled and honey sweet when brewed, with rich base notes and a provocative aroma.

Suggested brewing method: Soak the leaves first, briefly, in hot water, then drain out the water Use 7 grams of tea to 250cc (8.45 oz) of water at boiling (100°C) to penetrate the thickly rolled leaves. Steep for 1 minute for the first infusion. Let the tea cool down quite a bit before sipping in order for the floral and honey notes to emerge, along with the "green" notes that high mountain Taiwan teas have.
