Taiwan Silver Tip Oolong

Taiwan Silver Tip Oolong

Medium Caffeine

This is a tea of many names. "Silver Tip Oolong" refers to the white, silvery edges of the leaves. "Champagne Oolong" is due to the sweet, Darjeeling-esque muscatel linger. Its signature flavor develops from the leaves being nibbled by Leafhoppers while the plant is growing. The insect sucks juices from the plant, causing the bush to react and produce compounds that, luckily, taste great and lend sweetness. The tea is grown at a low altitude in a warm climate specifically to encourage these insects. This tea is harvested in the summer and is fairly heavily oxidized, but not roasted. Its aroma is naturally fruity with a sweet-tasting, bright reddish-orange liquor.
