This Wu Yi oolong is named for the hunched-over shape of the tree it comes from. A richly flavoured, Wuyishan long leaf oolong which is made to a dark roasted style. The tea has a deep chocolate character with a hint of malt on the palate. It is one of the better oolongs for meals and an excellent after dinner choice. It is one of the four famous bushes (Da Hong Pao, Bai Ji Guan, Tie Luo Han, Shui Jin Gui) of Wuyi. It has a complex, mineral-rich flavor. Brew it in a gai wan for best results.
To Enjoy: Place one teaspoon per cup into an infuser, filter or teapot. Switch the kettle off, before it boils, when you hear the water rumbling. Add the hot, but not boiling, water and infuse for 3 minutes. Serve immediately or remove leaves to prevent spoiling.
