Buddha’s Hand Oolong
Fóshǒu chá 佛手茶
Xiang Yuan Cultivar 香橼
Spring 2021 Harvest
Also called Citron Tie Guan Yin
Buddha’s hand is back! This was a favorite of some of our big oolong fans, so last time we procured it in 2018, it didn’t last long!
Named for the rolling style of the leaf…resembling the hands of Buddha in meditation. This tea is roasted in the style of Taiwanese Tie Guan Yin, giving a pleasantly sweet and amber cup (similar to Fujian Oolongs from China). Notes of apricot, citrus, and peach pit dominate a light yet full-bodied infusion…but the biggest impact of this tea is in the mouthfeel: smooth, sweet, and coating, there’s no dryness whatsoever. Not easy to accomplish with a darker roasted oolong. A unique and fun tea for sure!
