Budda's Palm Oolong (or Fo Shou or Buddha Hand) is a unique style of oolong originally coming to Taiwan from the Minan region of Fujian province of China.

Buddha Hand, or Fo Shou, is the name for the Chinese bergamot, an inedible citrus that’s used for scenting. This varietal of bergamot has finger-like fruits, that's why one of the name is Budda's Hand.

Fo Shou tea is similar in character to Tie Guan Yin, but it has a much stronger flavor and taste.

This tea is semi-oxidized.

Leaves: green, wide, stretched and slightly twisted.

Wet leaves: the longest leaves in the oolong family

Taste

Liquor is very deep scarlet.

Aroma is very rich, with hints of dark berries, dried plums, orchid and aged wine./

Taste is very soft and sweet, with rich grape notes. Aftertaste has original taste, going away slowly after drinking the tea.

Brewing

You can use any kind of tea pot, but clay tea pot suits much better.

Warm up the tea pot with the boiling water, put 2-5 grams of tea, and pour small amount of the boiling water into the tea and pour out, then pour 225-250 ml of boiling water and cover tea pot for three minutes before serving.

Boiling temperature – 90-95°C (195-205°F).

You can use this amount of tea 3 to 4 times.

The tea leaves come unrolled for full flavor

Additional information

This is one of the traditional ways of brewing. Depending on individual gustatory preferences you can you can vary brewing time from 35s to 5 minutes.

You can also use Chinese traditional way of brewing - spilling, using Gaiwan and brew for 3-5 second each time.

Please note, that it is natural tea with high content of active elements, including caffeine, and minerals and some unusual feelings could appear. In that case we recommend decrease quantity of dry leaves and brewing time.

Вкус вкупе с послевкусием неповторимы. Заваривал проливами, с очередным меняется интенсивность вкуса, но не его разнообразие.
В целом, как раз интенсивность+непохожий на другой чай вкус и задают хорошую оценку.
Не на каждый день.
