Rare Coarse Leaf Infusion | TeaFountain Superb Oolong Edition | The coarse and large leaves of this superior Yu Lan Xiang-Style are a 'Champagne of the China Teas'. This tea is a sweet and superb selection from the Phoenix Mountains in the Feng Huang province. In the withering process the leaves are shaped by hand and then wood-charcoal fired in wicker baskets to create and preserve a dark long-leaf with a magnolia blossom aroma that carries a fruity aftertaste.
A gentle steaming and semi-fermentation process (approx. 18%) of this precious tea allows the external part of the leaf to ferment without changing its cores chemistry significantly. Light, amber-colored infusion.
Outstanding flavor. Preferred by the tea connoisseur as afternoon & 'Dinner Tea' choice.
To sweeten add just a few White Rock Candy Crystals or our popular Oregon Tea Honeys # 88005. To prepare this selection use hot, not boiling water, let infuse for 5 minutes before serving and, if desired, add hot water up to 2 times to the same leaves, allowing the tea to infuse a couple of minutes longer each time.
