This is unroasted version of our Songboling Gui Fei 

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. Made in ecological garden few minutes from Songboling. The environment this tea was produced in is very clean because the garden lies next to a cliff, and is away from the pollution of the main town.

This tea, made from the Jin Xuan cultivar was bitten by the green leafhoppers and processed in a “honey style” – similar to famous Oriental beauty oolong but rolled in ball-shaped oolong style.

We asked the garden to keep for us raw, unroasted version of this Gui Fei to show you the taste of unfinished tea.

To be honest- it’s amazing. Very fresh, even slightly vegetal, grassy but full of notes of wild honey, resin and exotic fruits. Very pleasant do drink in the summer heat.
