Harvest:

Story:
Mr. Ye makes tea to his own taste. This means a slightly higher oxidation/ roast level than the "green oolong" style currently in fashion. The result is a mellow and balanced tea. It's a formula that especially suits the "milky" Jinxuan Oolong cultivar. The high green/floral notes blend in, rather than taking over.
And due to the tea only winning a lower prize (優良 yōu liáng) at competition this time, it comes at a special low price.
