  • Honey Oolong is a unique and exquisite tea variety originating from Taiwan, renowned for its delicate floral aroma, smooth texture, and subtle honey-like sweetness. 
  • Like Bai Hao (Oriental Beauty), Honey Oolong is made from leaves that have been intentionally bitten by a tiny insect called the tea green leafhopper (Jacobiasca formosana). These leafhoppers feed on the tea leaves, causing a unique reaction in the plant. In response to the insect bites, the tea leaves undergo physiological changes, producing distinctive flavors and aromas. The bug-bitten leaves develop a honey-like sweetness and a complex flavor profile with fruity, floral, and honey notes. This natural sweetness and the resulting flavors are highly sought after in Honey Oolong teas. 
  • The resulting tea liquor has a rich golden hue and releases a captivating aroma reminiscent of ripe fruits and honey. The taste of bug-bitten Honey Oolong is often described as sweet, fruity, and floral, with notes of honey, muscatel, and sometimes a hint of spice.

  • Bug-bitten teas like Honey Oolong are considered specialty teas due to their unique production process and resulting flavors. They are highly regarded and cherished by tea enthusiasts for their complexity and exquisite taste.
