  • 3 heaping tsp per 8 oz of water, 195°F, 3-5 min.

    • Hand-plucked, hand-made in a mild and rainy climate
    • Produced within the natural habitat of a small insect known as the Emerald Leafhopper
    • These leafhoppers or aphids readily eat tea leaves despite the caffeine which deters most other insects
    • The tea plants quickly respond to the attack, producing previously dormant flavor compounds which deter the leafhopper bites. Marvelously, these new flavor compounds give this oolong a flavor profile unlike any other, and it is delicious
    • This tea cannot be produced with pesticides which might kill the leafhoppers
    • This tea has many names: Oriental Beauty, Eastern Beauty, Formosa Oolong, Dong Fang Meiren, Champagne Oolong and Bai Hao.
    • This tea is sometimes called Pong Fong or "Bragging Tea" because of the exorbitant prices these teas commanded.
