No. 114, Zhangpin Shui Xian Oolong

Wild Flower Honey ~ Orchid ~ Lingering Sweetness

This lightly roasted, pesticide-free, Fujian oolong is a rare find. Tender, pesticide-free green leaves produce a nuanced cup abounding with warm, luxuriant notes of wild flower honey and orchid. The minimally oxidized, spring harvested leaves are pressed into wooden molds and dried on wooden trays over ash, and finally, wrapped in thin cloak of paper.  Like all good teas, Zhangpin Shui Xian may be enjoyed over multiple steeps. Each Atelier Bag includes five briquettes.
