Murchie's Fragrant Bud Yellow Tea is bright tasting and aromatic! This partially oxidized yellow tea has a fine finish that demands further sipping.
Due to its processing, the yellow tea loses the vegetal, "grassy" aftertaste which is often associated with green tea. Many tea drinkers who don't like the taste of green tea often prefer the yellow teas, as taste is subtler and sweeter. The taste is very light and mild, and has no bitterness to it. The aroma is often described as fresh and flowery.
Murchie's Oolong Tea Bars - made from leaves that are more lightly oxidized than traditional Shui Hsien and briefer roasting, resulting in a more floral cup. The bars are simply made from compacted leaves. This is a very old method once used to transport tea as bars or bricks did not take up as much room.
Delicate and refreshing, this semi-fermented Oolong tea has a lovely ripe peach overtone and a fragrance comparable to that of Jasmine. The leaves of this mild soothing brew can support multiple infusions, making it perfect for Gongfu style preparation.
