Made from the highest quality spring tea leaves, bitten by little green bugs called 'Jacobiasca formosana' before harvesting and skillfully turned into a piece of art by an experienced tea master, this exact tea will conquer every heart without a doubt. The process of producing this kind of tea is very complex and takes a lot of experience and knowledge to create an authentic one. This tea reaches 70-80 % of oxidation which makes it the most oxidised wulong tea.

Carefully hand-plucked "one bud and two leaves" combination guarantees tender and sweet as well as deep and complex taste. Beautiful tea starts to play with our feelings from the very first contact. The aroma of a dry leaf is strong and sweet with bakery notes. This tea is one of the most multifaceted in terms of taste and aroma, therefore everyone will find something different. After some time in a warmed teapot, this tea starts to smell with flowery, bakery, and honey notes. After rinsing tea leaves, the aroma changes and evolves, bringing sweeter, honey, and berry notes. A true symphony of fragrance and taste! Clear and transparent, the colour of infusion evolves from light to dark amber depending on infusion time.

This tea deserves the best! I recommend using tea pairs to appreciate everything this tea can offer. Before drinking it's worth smelling the aroma of a Wen Xiang Bei ('Fragrance cup") where you can find tender creamy notes, some cinnamon, and dried fruits. The taste is sweet, and gentle with notes of honey, jam, and berries. So many different pastry notes make you feel like you are in a bakery store. Drinking this tea is like listening to a symphony of aroma and taste.

Don't forget to appreciate the aroma as well as the taste of a drink. This tea will make you feel calm and relaxed. I find this tea very feminine. This tea is tender and exquisite, sweet and deep. It is one of the most delicious teas I've ever tried and it will become one of your favourites. Now it's time to try it yourself because words can't express even 10% of what you can experience.
