Somewhere between a green, white, and oolong, this soft and forgiving tea is a lot of fun for those that like to experiment with brewing parameters. The unique half white/half oolong processing of this tea gives the first steeps give up a fresh grass note before moving to a subtle sweet white tea style of flavor before becoming full on rich yellow fruit floral as the steeps progress. And progress they do! Due to the unique processing, this tea keeps brewing for many, many steeps!
Rarely grown in Taiwan, Ba Xian(Eight Immortals) cultivar is a fun departure from the regular Taiwanese cultivars. Creamy, sweet floral and and very 'yellow' this tea gives a unique twist to the classic Chinese cultivar!
