Plum Fragrance Honey Jia Long
Another exquisite tea by the immensely talented Mr. Chen. This tea is similar in many way to our Jia Long oolong, but this particular lot comes from a spring when there was snow. The cold weather lent itself to a delightful plum fragrance for the jia long. We purchased only a very small amount of this tea on a recent trip to Taiwan.
Mr. Chen's farm is in Central Taiwan and is pesticide free, converting over to bio-dynamic farming principles.
Use 2 grams of tea for every 6 ounces of water. Generally this works out to a teaspoon per every 6 ounces of water. Steep for 1 minute with 205 degree water. Great for multiple re-infusions.
