The leaves were biten by leafhoppers (Jacobiana Formosana), as well as Oriental Beauty. The biten leaves start to oxidize already on branches, that gives very original sweet spicy and honey tones to the tea, which is very popular and appreciated.

More in a Story.

Tea coming from surroundings of Bamboo Maountain in Nantou, grown in 500 m altitude on tea bushes cultivar Jin Xuan (TTES.12). The leaves were biten by leafhoppers (Jacobiana Formosana), as well as Oriental Beauty. The biten leaves start to oxidize already on branches, that gives very original sweet spicy and honey tones to the tea, which is very popular and appreciated. In fact, leafhoppers suck the juice out of the leaves, branches and buds. Affected plant starts to produce certain substances such as monoterpendiol and hetrienol, that cause the unique aroma. The leaves´rims then turn to white. Tea was picked in summer 2015 and was finally baked in April 2016. Middle level of oxidization (30 – 40 %) and baking (5 – 6 grade).
