The unique honey flavor of this tea comes from a surprising source! Tiny leaf hoppers dance among the tea bushes in northern Taiwan each summer. They bite the tea leaves, causing a chemical reaction in the plants that creates the characteristic flavor. Without the tiny leaf hopper, there would be no White Tip Oolong.

Pro Tips:

This tea is bulky, so be generous with the leaves to fully appreciate its character. A yixing pot (small pot) or gaiwan comes in handy for brewing multiple infusions. First, rinse the leaves for 30 seconds in hot water to prepare them for brewing. Brew the first infusion for 4 minutes, subsequent infusions for less than 1 minute. Always pour out all the tea completely after each infusion.
