This Tianxiang Hong Oolong is definitely a unexpected catch during our visit at our Tea-Baking Master Mr. Li. It's been very fortunate to have found this master. For decades, with heart and passion in his work as well as helping other tea farmers in Nantou to find the the natural way (without chemicals) of tea cultivation. This tea is from the same master for our Master Tie Guan Yin and Wood Baked Hong Cha. The raw material is from Guo Xing Village [國 姓 鄉] in Nantou County and were hand-picked in the Summer 2017. This tea is heavily oxidised, though not 100%, and was baked over flame and is completely handmade. Sweet, but not in the caramel-type as it is known in many baked/roasted oolong. It is much fruitier and reminds us immediately of longan fruits. And then there was this floral character which surprised us in every cup over and over again. After a few infusions, the Master presented proudly the name of this teas: Tian Xian Hong Oolong (in German: Red Oolong with a heavenly scent). Yes, a very exceptional Oolong.
