#33 - Honey Oolong Tea

The tea we are sharing with the Eco-Cha Tea Club this month comes from a small family farm run by a mom, dad, and son team. A recent spring harvest offered the pleasant surprise of one day's harvest turning out to be Honey Oolong. This name is properly used when the flavor of the tea has a distinct honey character that results from the Green Leafhopper working its magic.
