More mature tea leaves are plucked, which contain more aromatics, and withered indoors in a process that simulates sun drying. The leaves are then twisted length-wise, and lightly oxidized. The floral notes are reminiscent of a high-mountain Taiwanese oolong. An unforgettable tea! The same tea leaves can be steeped a second time. Add 1 minute more for the second steeping.
