Uncommonly large leaves of mellow, forest green are gently twisted according to traditional tea-making practices to produce this nearly extinct varietal of oolong. Its serene, vegetal sweetness is enhanced with notes of tropical fruits and fresh gardenia. In your own hands, the dancing steam, beckoning aroma and full-bodied flavor come perfectly together, inviting you to pause, drink in, and deeply appreciate the fleeting joy of this tea.

Called Buddha's Hand because of the large shape of the leaves, this close cousin to Baochong is enjoying an exceptional season, with stunning mango and papaya aroma in the nose and trailing in the cup, and a subtle spicy but earthiness in the palate. The best crop in memory and not to be missed.
