From Taiwan Sourcing

Our “Honey Aroma” oolong tea gets its name from the fact that the leaves are bitten by grasshopper-like tiny bugs that stimulate the defense mechanism of the tea plant. Resulting in a characteristic honey aroma and flavor in the final product.

Our fresh Taiwanese oolong is a sweet treat. Steep this tea many times to appreciate the smooth development from soft and inviting to sweet and rich.

This was a very good tea. From a certain perspective I guess you could say this had notes of honey. It certainly had a prominent sweet note. I liked this tea and I don’t remember the price being too high.

I steeped this twelve times in a 150ml gaiwan with 7.1g leaf and 190 degree water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min.
