Tea Of The Week

Dry leaf form of Bai hao wulong

Bai Hao is a wulong tea from Taiwan. It is produced in limited quantities because of the specific conditions under which it can be produced, and the amount of labor required to pick.

High-quality picking is a bud, a cracked bud, and one open leaf, though lower quality versions are less strict about the picking. All are picked during the summer--usually around June--from bushes that have been bitten by the Chinese greenleaf cicada (小綠葉蟬), also known as the "leaf hopper." It is said that the combination of the saliva of the insect, plus chemicals produced as a defense mechanism by the plant, combine to produce a flavor unique to Bai Hao. (more)
