Oolong Duchess, also known as Gui Fei Oolong, Gui Fei Mei Ren, Honey Oolong or Mixiang Oolong, is a new style of Oolong tea developed after the 921 earthquake attacked central Taiwan in 1999. After the earthquake, tea growers were too busy in rebuilding to harvest the summer batch. The tea bushes became food of green leaf cicadas. Just like Oriental Beauty in the northern part of Taiwan, the bugs left this honey character to the tea leaves. Our Oolong Duchess is naturally grown in Lugu area, harvest by hand and produced once a year in summer by Dongding tea masters. It is full of wild honey aroma with the complexity and depth of Oolong.
