Estate/Region: Hualian District
This beautiful tea is from the Hualien district of Taiwan and is produced during the summer when the young leaves are nibbled by Jassids (small grasshopper type insects) this causes the plant to react and it influences the beautiful flavour of this tea. A longish, slightly curled leaf, dark brown in colour with some coppery tones. The smooth liquor is lightly floral with notes of caramel and honey. It is similar to a dark oolong.
