Bitten oolong originated in Taiwan, and is continuing to gain a devoted following year by year. Our FengHuang GuiFei follows a traditional method of crafting bitten oolong, which involves roasting the bitten leaf to draw out more honey and fruit flavors. Following tea trends in the East, demand for a floral and green version of bitten oolong has been increasing. We crafted our Honey Jade Oolong to answer that call; and both East and West will undoubtedly find this tea above all expectations.
The aroma of pressed flowers and the verdant color of the rolled leaf is clearly identifiable as a very green oolong, at or under 25% oxidization. When brewed, reddish amber is visible along the edges of the wet leaf, lending a unique aesthetic touch. The flavor starts floral—Jasmine, baby’s breath—with an oft overlooked tinge of pit fruit. The aftertaste oozes honey, with a thick and syrupy mouthfeel to match. Try Honey Jade for a green oolong unlike any other in your collection, unless you happen to have another green bitten.
Prepare 3 grams of tea leaf (slightly less than a teaspoon) per 100ml of water(about half a cup).
For the first two steeps, 95°c water for no longer than 60 seconds will provide plenty of flavor. From the third steep onward it is fine to add up to thirty additional seconds per steep. This should provide between four and six re-steeps depending on the quality of the tea. For larger vessels (teapots of over 500ml) re-steep potential is usually lower.
