Golden Oolong is a blend of Tieguanyin and Yellow Gold. Both are intensely aromatic, but one is sweet licorice, and the other is honeysuckle like. Custom made at the farm to get the blend just right, we tested out many batches of both spring crops to come up with the 'golden' ratio of the two revered oolongs. Perfect for cold steeping as well as hot brewing, the only oolong that can claim both. A great affordable gift to introduce your friends and family to whole leaf tea drinking.
Young rose buds are mixed in to add a floral herbaceous flavor. Rose petals are considered warming in traditional Chinese herbal medicine and have been used for centuries for improving circulation and relieving muscle cramps.
In records during the Tang Dynasty (618-906 AD), the famous beauty Yang Gui Fei, who was the concubine of the emperor, bathed in spring water soaked with roses. Yang Gui Fei was especially famous for her beautiful porcelain skin that was from bathing in the rose petals. In the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) there is a famous tea book, Cha Pu that mentions rose herbal tea for helping soothe qi in the stomach or liver and relieve muscle and joint pain.
