Flavor Profile: rose, dried pineapple, Muscat grape
Origin: Mộc Châu, Sơn La, Vietnam
Harvest: July 2018

One the most popular teas in this sampler lineup and I’m not surprised why.

Champagne Oolong also known in Taiwan as White Tip oolong or Oriental Beauty is beloved for its signature aroma of rose and Muscat grape. Produced on the Mộc Châu plateau, the highly oxidized tea has a sweet aftertaste that lingers long after. Often dubbed as a “bug-bitten tea”, the distinct flavor is attributed to the tea cricket, Jacobiasca formosana that thrive during the warmer months.

After the leafhopper bites the tea plant, the leaves produce a hormone as a defense mechanism. During the oxidation process in production, the high levels of these hormone translates to the deep floral and grape-y character we then later taste in our cup.

This harvest from 2018 continues to age well!
