Fanpokeng Natural Farming Dah Pan "Orient Breeze" Bug Bitten Oolong Tea - Summer 2020Taiwan Sourcing
There are a lot of abandoned plantations in Beipu area, and thanks to our friend Mr. Chen, who have been working relentlessly at Beipu area, some of these plantations are under his careful watch and being utilized properly. This tea plantation at Fanpokeng are some the cleanest land we encountered so far in Beipu, and suffered from pests this season like many other teas.
Abandoned for decades, the surviving trees proved their value and conspicuous character through their longevity just like the Qing Xin Oolong of "Pangolin." The land owner (who is a old grandma if you are wondering) asked Mr. Chen of Beipu not to use their land for any other purposes but to ensure the tea trees may be retained. As a result, Mr. Chen has became the guardian of this rare and pure land.
Processed by Mr. Chen, whose style focused on high aroma rather than very strong rhythm in the mouth. As a result, you will receive a silk like body inside your mouth instead of the robust character like traditional processing, making this tea a sharp comparison to the traditional style tea. If you are looking for a powerful tea to fresh your day up. this strongly bug-bitten "Orient Breeze" is not a tea to be missed.
