From The Silk Tea Co.

This prized, almost black oolong is one of nature’s most fascinating love stories. Cultivated at a high elevation (1200 meters above sea level) on an all-natural tea estate with no chemicals in Taiwan’s freshest air, this tea is love-bitten by leaf hoppers. Leaf hoppers are a blessing on the local tea farms. They sweeten young tea leaves when they munch on the plant sap. This batch is hand-harvested and carefully oxidized. It unfurls soft, honeyed floral notes. Steep 1 teaspoon (3 grams) in 6 oz (180 ml) of water at 200°F / 95°C for 1 minute, re-steep 3-5+ times, a bit longer each time to fully enjoy the sweet osmanthus, honey, and caramel notes.

Picked this up from MJ’s recent “Passport Collection” of single origin oolongs!

I’ve been eagerly waiting for this collection to drop since it was first teased by MJ and TeaWithJann several months ago, and this first tasting doesn’t disappoint!! Smooth and medium bodied, this tea boasts wonderful golden honey notes that fit its namesake perfectly and is amplified further with toasty and softly floral tasting notes of orchid and osmanthus!

All I could think about while sipping was Ambrosia, which made for the perfect pairing with volume four of Lore Olympus – a Greek Mythology inspired web comic that I’ve been loving the printed version of. It just has such beautiful artwork and story telling!
