Golden Turtle Oolong tea is a second Gui Fei style 'partially bug bitten' tea that we offer but this time produced from the Kim Tuyen (or Jin Xuan) cultivar. The tea inherits the typical Kim Tuyen creamy aroma and is complemented with a deep honeyed intensity. Brewed lightly and the tea is has an extremely pleasant floral and fruity nature while brewing for longer draws out stronger roasted or toasted notes.
This tea was produced exclusively for the Taiwanese market and we have been very fortunate to get hold of a consignment for ourselves. Golden Turtle is another tea that can only be made during the summer months when the leafhoppers are active and allowed to suck sap from the growing leaves creative unique flavour characteristics. It is oxidised to approximately 30% after which an intricate roasting cycle creates the tea’s indivduality.
Golden Turtle is from the same farm as many of our other oolong teas located at altitudes between 1100 and 1200 metres on the rolling Moc Chau plateau in Son La province.
