Pomelo Blossom Loose Leaf Tea
Eric Chan has been head of his family’s heirloom arbor for a decade now. A young, third-generation grower situated in the venerable Phoenix Mountain Range of Guangdong, Eric melds a reverence for varietal oolong with a thirst for experimentation.
To celebrate Spirit Tea's fifth year of buying from Chan, they sourced a lot from one of his oldest parcels: You Hua Xiang ‘Pomelo Blossom Aroma’ a Phoenix Oolong very popular in 1886, when the grove was planted, less so today.
A contemplative infusion; minimal oxidation, bamboo basket tumbling, and a light finishing bake endow the old tree material with an ethereal floral quality. Notes of orange marmalade, yuzu, and elderflower liqueur.
Produced by Spirit Tea in Chicago, IL. 40g box of loose leaf tea - approximately 8 servings per box.
