This high quality tea is from the Lugu region of Nantou County in central Taiwan.

This season was one the best for growing tea - is was wet enough and not very hot.

This tea is from alpine plantations (height 1500 m) and hand cutting. Tea bushes grow on high-mountain plantations in the ecologically clean environment.

The raw stuff for the production of this tea is freshly picked rich bud with 2 young leaves. After harvesting bud and leaves mash to raise a juice, and fermentation begins. Tea leaves are oxidized by the air. After that fermented tea is fried in boilers for some time. The combination of time and temperature of roasting is held every plantation in the strictest confidence. Modern technology of tea leaf rolling and heat treatment can keep the high content of tannins and catechines.

Leaves: are green, compact, rolled into small balls, which are straighten during brewing

Effects for the body

Taste

Clean and clear brew is golden emerald colored. Aroma is rich floral-fruity with a hint of peach. Taste is very soft with sugar and floral aromas and vanilla - creamy aftertaste. This oolong is perfect for quiet afternoon or five o’clock 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 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.

Compared to the four-season oolong, the taste is similar, but the taste seems stronger and the taste is maintained even after several times of tea.

This tea has absolutely heavenly smell - dry tea as well as infused. I concur with Vasily - it does remind me Feng Huang Dan Cong, but lightly fermented and without bitterness. It has very strong physical effect, it goes to the head. I will be repurchasing it right away, as it is a new favorite.

Глядя на фотографию предполагалась встреча с улуном слабой прожарки, но не тут-то было. Разочарован.
Указывайте пожалуйста, степень ферментации и прожарки (прокаливания) в процентном соотношении, дабы исключить подобные недоразумения.

Taiwanleaftea.com: it's not very good idea to get the taste by photo. From the description: "Tea leaves are oxidized by the air. After that fermented tea is fried in boilers for some time." It's a good idea to add this info to the description. We'll do it. Anyway if you are not familiar with specific variety of tea, don't hesitate to ask by mail or in Facebook.

Like the tea! The flavour of peach presents indeed. Comparing it with those having in description 'lightly fermented', I would call the Lugu to be middle fermented. It reminds me of my favorite Feng Huang Dan Cong.
