Formosa Oolong “Butterfly of Taiwan”, 50g
This leaf with its many shades of green and brown is only produced in the Taiwanese highlands. Stopping the fermentation process at the right moment leaves only the edges fermented, whereas the leaf centre remains green. This quality has a fleshier and more finely processed leaf than standard Oolongs. The cup shines in a brassy colour. The infusion shows the blaze of colour with the differences between intense green and brown colours. The tea has a slight black tea character with a pleasant sweetness and a slightly doughy note.
