Buddha's Hand is a green oolong tea grown in the birthplace of White Crane kung fu. We've got limited stocks, so use your chi and order it quickly!
This tea has a superb rich, buttery taste, and also has the highest tannin content of any oolong tea. It's one reason why the locals believe it to be soothing to the digestive system.
This tea was picked in April 2012 in Yong Chun, Fujian Province. Yong Chun is only a few miles away from Anxi, where Iron Buddha is produced. The terroir is very similar, but slight differences in elevation, soil and processing methods produce a noticeably stronger, fuller and richer taste in Buddha's Hand.
This fo shou tea has quite a strong taste, and that's how the Yong Chun locals like it. You can either try to brew it light (10-20 seconds, 90 degree water) or just embrace the tannins and natural chlorophyll taste by brewing for 30-40 seconds with just off the boil water.
