Black Honey Oolong *OUT OF STOCK*

This is an exquisite find!  The leaves of the Black Honey Oolong are gorgeous, curled, first-flush tips from the Luye township in Southern Taiwan.  The aroma of the dry leaves is so sweet and intoxicating, but nothing compared to the steeped honey-like fragrance and flavor.  This tea is grown on a single organic farm run by a woman and her son.  The region is home to a type of bug called the leaf hopper, which bites the tea plants and sucks the nectar from the leaves, causing the fermentation process to begin while the leaves are still on the plants.  When these leaves are plucked and oxidized, the result is a naturally honey-like sweetness within the leaf.  Several other growing regions try to replicate this process, but this is where is occurs naturally.  Don't miss out on this tea, only a limited quantity is available!
