This rarity of the Hualien district located at the eastern coast of Taiwan is home of this speciality: It is mainly produced during the summer months when the young leaves are nibbled at by small grasshoppers, which leads the leaves to stop their growth and to curl. At the same time, the salivary juice of the grasshoppers initiates a reaction with the plant juices, yielding a slightly honey-like flavor. A result, which is responsible for the name as well as the wonderful taste. A very well-worked leaf with longish, dark brown leaves and some copper-colored tips, slightly curled. The strong, brazen-colored, shining cup unfolds a scent of a great Oolong. The floral notes with a hint of honey and some malty aromas will pamper your taste buds. Will wow all levels of tea drinkers.
