Camellia sinensis

This lightly fermented oolong has a delicate floral fragrance that seeps from the cup. Some liken the aroma to sweet corn, while others say it is reminiscent of jasmine. The buttery flavors of honeysuckle and hay that follow make Golden Lily a staff favorite.

Brew 1-2 minutes at 190°F; 1 to 5 steepings (for multiple steepings of Golden Lily, use the shorter brewing time).
