Benifuki Japanese Oolong

Here is an intriguing offer for the adventurous oolong lover.  This oolong is made in Kagoshima, Japan from the second flush benifuki cultivar.  Known for its astringency and bold flavor, benifuki softens a bit in the summer, and makes an interesting starting point for producing an oolong.  Best flash-steeped in a gaiwan, this oolong has similar characteristics as a baozhong, but with more umph.  Sweet and floral at the start, with a lingering dryness that keeps you wanting more.
