Royal Gui Fei Oolong Tea – is rather new oolong from Taiwan, it was invented in year 2000. It is grown in Lugu (Nantou county) in the altitude 1350m from Dong Ding tea bushes, but using the same technology, which is used by growing Oriental Beauty Tea, but with round dry leaves. The buds are bitten by the Jacobiasca formosana (one kind of insect live in tea farms) and then the oolong will have a special sweet taste. Because of this insect, farmers couldn’t use any insecticide. As a result, the tea farms for Oriental beauty tea become totally natural and organic.
Yang Gui Fei was the beloved consort of Emperor Xuanzong of Tang during his later years. Her name became the symbol of woman’s beauty.
Leaves: leaves are green in the center and reddish in the edge and very thick. They are rolled in perfect balls.
Tea has sweet and honey-fruity taste with notes of spice.
Warm up the tea pot with the boiling water, put 3 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 3-5 minutes before serving.
