From Breathing Leaves

This green oolong comes from the gardens of Luoyan Village [罗岩村]. Roughly 800 meters above sea level, the tea bushes grow in fields and terraces alongside a small variety of native plants.

This is the Summer harvest, made in July of 2019. Because this tea was grown in the summer without any pesticides, leafhoppers bite the tea leaves and provide the tea with its distinctive sweetness. The picking standard of this tea is roughly 1 bud for every 2 leaves. The leaves were withered in the sun, shaken and oxidized by hand, and then fired and shaped by machine before drying. The tea itself is sweet, buttery and floral. It is a very approachable tea.

My favorite lightly-oxidized oolongs have a lot of buttery, floral notes and very few vegetal, green notes. I was therefore excited to share this tea because it fits that bill very well. The most prominent notes are rich buttery corn accented by bright dandelion florals. The sweet and floral profile makes this a wonderful everyday tea that brews easily and consistently.
