From Immortalitea

The floral aroma of lilies is immediately noticeable from the first brew through to a 5th or even 6th brewing. The lily aroma is natural to this oolong. The tea brews up a beautiful golden color. Hence the name, Golden Lily. This is considered one of the best in the world.

This high quality tea combined with the pure air and water in the Thai highlands results in a beautiful tea. We use only the top bud and harvest only the first two leaves from each bud. We use a 20% – 30% fermentation which results in a beautiful golden, highly aromatic tea with a slightly sweet floral taste, often called Golden Aroma tea.
Country of Origin: Thailand

Region: Chiang Rai Highlands

Harvest: Spring

Production Notes: 25% – 30% Fermentation (almost green), Grown in Thailand from a Formosan cultivar.

Tasting Notes: This is a very easy to like oolong. The floral fragrance is instantly noticeable in the aroma but modestly present on the palate. The dominate flavor is milkiness for which the tea is well known, a very smooth silky mouth that lingers for a long time. Just a hint of grass in the after-notes. This is a strong candidate for your “go-to” oolong. Good for at least three steepings.

Caffeine: Yes

Oolong tea quantity: ½ tsp – 1 tsp. per 8 oz. cup (can be reused more than 3 times)

Brewing time: 3-8 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea

Water temperature: About 170 F (75 C) (Just barely starting to boil)

…well, hello Coffee, hello Chocolate…Cherry Oolong? Okay, the flavor stayed in the tumbler and this tea absorbed every scent it could. Oddly enough, it tastes like a carbon copy of the Chocolate Cherry Latte Oolong. Attack of the body snatchers!

But to emphasize the point about THIS tea: it is VERY delicate. Who knew it would be this easy to flavor? I at least had a prolonged goodbye to a favorite.
