The Discovery Teas
Indigenous tea cultivars are not mainstream in Taiwan due to their wild temperament. This varietal, originally grown wild in Yong Kong Mountain, was brought to the lowlands for cultivation as a hobby by Mr. Liao. He cultivated exactly one thousand bushes, making this tea a unique find.
This medium roast Buddha’s Hand is a classic style of its cultivar. The name of this tea comes from the uncommonly large size of the tea leaves which can be nearly the size of a palm before they are rolled. Drinking the roasted version of this tea is like curling up with a warm blanket by a fireplace in the woods upstate.
This Oriental Beauty vintage was made by the same producer as the other two versions we offer, though in the 90's. We find that the signature notes of rose and citrus have matured into a fuller palate. Taste daylily, blossom honey, and preserved plum as aromas of rosehip waft out of the teacup.
