Description

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 flavour 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.

Special qualities

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

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional

Rare and ephemeral, teas identified as Grands Crus by Palais des Thés are the result of alchemy between a tea plant variety, its terroir and the talent of an artisan grower. Meticulously plucked, processed and sourced in the most respected tea gardens, our Grands Crus unveil unique flavours that reflect the refinement of their origins.
