Detail

Our verdict:
Harvested and processed in Taiwan during the months of July and August only, the finest Bai Hao Wu long teas are known as “Oriental Beauty” and owe their unusual flavor to the actions of a tiny insect, commonly known as “paoli” (Jacobiasca Formosana). By sucking out the tea leaves’ sap, the insect triggers a transformation in the leaves’ metabolism, favouring the appearance of new aromatic compounds.

The qualities of this tea are absolutely extraordinary: dozens of aromatic notes work together to create a remarkable harmony. A unique experience! Tasting a tea of this quality, so rarely available outside Taiwan, is a unique experience.

- Origin: Taiwan, village of Emei, County of Hsinchu
- Oxidation level: 70%
- Tea color: Oolong
- Number of Gong Fu Cha infusions: 7

Dry leaves:
- Aspect: big and nice twisted leaves, with downy buds.
- Color: brown, coppery, silvery.
- Scents: very rich, complex notes: honey, fruit (cooked, stewed and dried fruit), as well as zesty, floral and woody aromas, with a spicy, vanilla accent.

Brewed:
- Scents: a superb, fragrant bouquet in which can be distinguished many different notes, a sign of a very rich aroma. Lots of honey at first, with lemongrass, geranium, zest and fruit (fresh fruit, plum, apple, pear), followed by more woody notes (wax polished wood), cooked fruit and plenty of vanilla. Hints of cocoa and spices.

Liquor:
- Colour: glossy and limpid, coppery yellow with red glints.
- Texture: smooth at the start, then a touch of astringency that coats the palate and gives this tea a good presence and elegance.
- Flavors: sweet.
- Aromas: a lovely attack. A floral note (rose, geranium) with a hint of lemongrass then zest, pronounced honey and fruit fragrances (fresh fruit, pear, grape, mirabelle, lychee) combined with spicy (pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg), woody notes, with sweet vanilla, cocoa and liquorice, then fruity (blackberry) scents of stewed and dried fruit.
- Aromatic profile and length in the mouth: intense, harmonious notes present from start to finish. This tea is particularly long in the mouth, with lingering woody, honey, spicy, liquorice and dried fruit notes.
