Buddha's Hand - 香櫞佛手
Buddha's Hand is famous for its shape and resemblance to the size of a human hand. This version is lightly oxidized and un-roasted, a rare find as it is usually roasted throughout Taiwan. Enjoyed in peaceful gardens or bustling city streets, Buddha's Hand provides a sense of calm. Its aroma is floral, like white flowers and hay. With each steeping, its qualities change and develop. As its palms open it displays savory notes with vegetal overlays. This is walking on an uneven path, testing taste and a sense of self-discovery.
