buddha hand cultivar oolong

Cocoa, Ripe Fruit, Toasty

This is a unique, traditional cultivar that has become increasingly rare to find. It is called Buddha Hand for it's hand-sized leaves and or the aroma which is said to resemble that of the long, finger-like citrus fruit of the same name.

The 2016 roasting has integrated well into the tea, but is still a very forward note. Other notes of ripe fruit and cocoa show up in the taste, and the sweet aftertaste lingers long in the mouth. It is a heavily roasted tea with a medium to heavy bodied broth. It is very well rounded. Lovers of roasted oolong and rare, unique cultivars will love this tea.
