Camellia sinensis

This competition-grade oolong delighted us at first sip. The lightly oxidixed, light and dark green leaves unfurl slowly during steeping to release a lush, honey-colored liquor and an orchid-like flavor that will awaken the palate and linger for some time. This Monkey Picked Ti Kuan Yin oolong is rich and good for many infusions as the leaves release the complex flavor. Leaves are picked from hard to reach, rocky slopes. But, is it really monkey-picked? We're not telling.

Brew 1-2 minutes at 195°F; 1 to 6 steepings (for multiple steeps, use the shorter steeping time).
