Gui Fei Oolong

$3.80

Gui Fei (貴妃) in Chinese refers to the emperor’s senior concubine, and as such is sometimes called “Concubine Oolong”.  It is a very rare and unique tea grown only once a year in Lugu Township, at an elevation of approximately 800 meters.  Every growing season, leafhoppers are allowed to bite the tea leaves, causing a chemical reaction as the tree tries to heal itself.  After an oxidation and roasting process similar to traditional Dong Ding oolongs, the result is a deliciously fruity tea with a similar yet very distinctive taste to Eastern Beauty.  This tea has a natural fruity, honey flavor with notes of apples and almonds.  It is exceptionally smooth and lacks just about any sign of astringency – drink pure and enjoy its natural sweetness.
