From Masters Teas

Hou Zi Cai or Ma Liu Mi (Cantonese) is a greener, lightly roasted Monkey Picked variety of oolong from Anxi county, famous for producing Tie Guan Yin. This lovely spring harvest offers a very light cup that is gorgeously intricate in profile with a lingering, pronounced floral note.

About the leaves:

Grown between 500 and 1200 meters above sea level, our 2019 Ma Liu Mi is a lighter roast oolong harvested in May from 10-year-old trees. Its picking standard is one bud and 2 or 3 leaves, which can grow up to 8 cm in length. The leaves are then fired by hand and roasted once.

This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 180° for 2-3 minutes.

This tea had the same fruity smell as the anxi wulong low fire, but way less flavor overall. It looks like this has gotten really good reviews, so it might just be me but I didn’t taste much but a mild fruityness. There’s a floral aroma too but everything is just way too toned down for me. Will try again later with more leaves.
