This semi-fermented Oolong at about 60% is a marvel of contrast and character. At the same time sweet, honeyed and jasmine in flavor like a lightly fermented Oolong, it also has the powerful, frank and mineral taste of a full-bodied Oolong. Both yin and yang, this tea will make you experience an almost divine harmony. Fo Shou (佛手) or Hand of Buddha owes its name to the gigantic size of its leaves, which can be infused up to six or seven times.
Oolong tea or Wu Long (乌龙, literally black dragon) also called blue-green tea, is a tea of Chinese origin (in particular from Fujian and Taiwan) whose whole leaves have the particularity of being withered and slightly rolled to promote their oxidative fermentation (or oxidation). Halfway between green tea (unfermented) and black tea (completely fermented), oxidation will give the tea its characteristic dark color and develop a great complexity of new aromas.
