The Gui Fei you received comes from garden near Lugu Village and it is made 100% in traditional taiwanese Gui Fei style, also free from any pesticides. Gui Fei is notable as it requires the leaf to be bitten by jassids just like Oriental Beauty (Bai Hao Oolong) The tea plant responds by releasing more polyphenols into the leaves, resulting in flowery and honey like flavours.

This particular Gui Fei is exceptionally clean and balanced. We can say elegant. Oxidation of those tightly rolled leaves is quite high but roasting very gentle. When you taste this tea first two infusions are so soft and yellow but each next will be darker and more interesting. The tea is full of fresh honey-like notes enriched by ripe fruits flavours and something between malt, raisins and wood. It’s like a mix of Oriental Beauty with Mr. Zhang Dong Ding Hong Cha. Charming tea – good for at least 7-8 infusions.



Origin: Lugu, Nantou, Taiwan

Harvest: April 2018

Cultivar: Qing Xing (Chin Shin)

Temperature of water and amount of leaves: 100 C 5-6g/100ml.

Suggested brewing method: Yixing clay teapot or gaiwan of low capacity. First, you should pre-heat empty teapot/gaiwan and tea cups with boiling water. When the teapot is warmed, then you put the tea leaves in. After smelling hot and dry leaves in the pot, gently pour the boiling water to the pot.  First infusion should be very short- not more than 15-20 second. We suggest to increase brewing time for 5-10 seconds in each next brewing. You can prepare at least 8-10 nice brewings!
