Gongfu Party Sampler 3: Bug Bitten Summer Teas from Taiwan
A perfect pick for lovers of black tea wanting a full, round finish. Taiwan'd red (black) teas are never bitter or astringent. These are the famous "bug-bitten", summer teas prized for their natural sweetness and honey-like fragrance. They come from clean, bio-dynamic growing regions, which allow the green tea hopper to nibble the leaves, resulting in an aromatic profile delightful to the human palate (but evidently frightful to other pests).
These teas are always picked in Summer, when the green tea hopper comes to visit the tea fields, and are generally finished as red tea (black tea) or in dark Oolongs.
Perfect as a gift or as a way to explore tea, this sample set includes 3 nitrogen-packed envelopes of premium Taiwanese Oolong tea.
Each 7-gram packet is just the right size for an extended gongfu session with gaiwan (3-6 steeps) or for 2 full pots brewed with the Redbird Perfect Little Teapot or similar 16 oz teapot.
