Add to my notebook

Following the aesthetic of a Bai Hao with the cultivar (qingshin), a favourite of the Taiwanese, this "Oriental Beauty" comes to us from plantations located on the flanks of the Jingmai mountain in Yunnan (China).

Its long leaves with hues of ochre and khaki reveal, upon immersion in water, rich fragrances of bark and cooked pears. Its attractive amber liquor boasts sweet and tart flavors evoking citrus zest.

The finish lightly cradles the palate with its nuances of sweet spices (cinnamon) and heady flowers.

Bai Hao

Easily one of the most famous teas coming out of Taiwan, Bai Hao wulong carries out a very distinctive taste (akin to muscat grapes and spices) that is due to the intervention of a very specific leafhopper (Jacobiasca formosana).
