OUR TEAS: A TASTE OF TEAGW


Formosa Green Dragon Oolong

Formosa Green Dragon Oolong

Like a breath of fire unfurling from the dragon, the tightly rolled, pellet-like leaf of this Taiwanese oolong seems to exhale when heated, expanding in the water to reveal an exquisite bud and two light green leaves. Ideal for multiple infusions, its smooth, aromatic character continues to morph in tandem with the leaves, making each new taste more seductive than the last. For a sweeter flavor with a slight floral undertone, allow each infusion to brew an extra 10 seconds.

Pouchong

Pouchong

Sourced from the Pinlin region of Taipei—considered to be the world's finest producer of pouchong—this tea has deep green leaves scented by the earth. Often called Chinese green tea, pouchong is actually lightly oxidized for a stronger, sweeter flavor that freshens the mouth and lingers on the palate. For a floral cup with pungent aroma, brew pouchong gongfu style in a Yixing clay teapot or gaiwan to allow the tea's unique flavors to unfurl over many steepings.

Jasmine

Jasmine

The tantalizing fragrance of night-blooming jasmine is highly coveted among bewitched western enthusiasts. In the evening, when jasmine is at its most alluring, the blooms are layered over green tea leaves to infuse their sweet perfume. When brewed, this tea yields a full-bodied liquor with an intoxicating scent that floats up from a fresh infusion just as it does from jasmine's tender petals.

Gui-Hua

Guai-hua

Descending from one of China's highest peaks, Gui-Hua takes its name from the native osmanthus flower. Once dried, wispy oolong leaves are baked with fresh osmanthus blooms to endow the tea with the petals’ entrancing aroma. The result is a round, well-balanced brew that is neither too sweet nor too strong, with a rich and silky texture. A keen nose may detect hints of papaya and orchid.

Oriental Beauty

Oriental Beauty

This highly oxidized tea gets its robust sweet-and-sour flavor from the summertime love-bite of the "tea jassid" - a small cricket found in Taiwan that begins the oxidation process with its first little nibble. With a singular musk and notes of fresh fruit, Oriental Beauty was, according to legend, named by a famous admirer: Queen Elizabeth II.
