We are so happy to offer you this Gui Fei. It comes from high mountain garden in Shan Lin Xi. This oolong is being produced for few past years but the whole production (less than 50kg annually) was usually kept by the farmer and his family. This year were able to buy little bit less than 10 kg and import to Poland.

The leaves picked during hot day bring us the essence of the summer. Here you will find strong notes of tropical fruits (passion fruit, mango), honey, resin and bitter notes of grapefruit and pomelo.

Liquor is strong and full bodied with well pronounced bitterness that does not cover the fresh and fruity flavors.

Gui Fei is notable as it requires the leaf to be bitten by jassids. The tea plant responds by releasing more polyphenols into the leaves, resulting in flowery and honey like flavours.

We all love bug-bitten oolongs. This is one of them.

Description

Origin:  1400-1500 m. above sea level, Shan Lin Xi, Nantou county, Taiwan,

Harvest: July 2020

Cultivar/Tree Variety:  Qing Xin

Temperature of water and amount of leaves: 95-100 C 5-7g/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 40 second. Second infusion should be little bit shorter than first one cause the leaves are more open then. We suggest to increase brewing time for 5-10 seconds in third and each next brewing.

    Totally amazing. Probably one of the best teas we´ve ever had. It has a wonderful balance of sweet, fruity, creamy and roasty. Incredible depth and very interesting development over many many brews (we got more than 10 from our first session).
