Halcyon In Flight - Striped Concubine Guei Fei Cha - 1.5 oz
Produced in Nantou, Taiwan (Zong Liao Region), Halcyon In Fight is a bright striped version of Halcyon. The striped type is considered to be the older method and originated in Wuyi Shan in Northern Fujian Province. We find that it has less patience, but stronger brew. Halcyon in Flight carries flavors of light orange rind, fresh sweet grass, and amber honey with a beautifully complex aromatic pallet. The floral qualities come through more in the aroma, with qualities of lilac and geranium. A smooth light body and aftertaste that lingers like a cloud. The Qi is pervasive throughout the upper body, mildly stimulating yet more grounding than most Oolong. A sublime tea for a warm Spring or Summer day, refreshing and bright like an afternoon sun. The stems are left in during the processing to diminish the astringency and bring out the sweetness.
