Description
 
Gui Fei belongs to a subclass of tea known as bitten oolong. Bitten oolong originated in Taiwan, and is continuing to gain a devoted following. Bitten teas are created when the leaves are bitten by cicadas causing the leaf to oxidize while on the branch. A traditional method of crafting bitten oolong, involves roasting the bitten leaf to draw out more spiced honey and fruit flavors. Gui Fei has a tendency to be tricky to brew. Start brewing this tea with shorter infusions. Use about three grams per 100 ml of water. Use 200 degree water with a 30 second steep . The first steeping will be a preview of the awesomeness to come. Further steepings at two minutes will produce a flavor profile like a robust Oriental Beauty with a lush sweetness to it!

NOTES:
Studies have shown that Wulong tea can help with weight loss. Wulong (oolong) teas are complicated to produce, involving more steps than with most other teas. The range of oxidation runs from about 30 to 80 percent, and Rock Wulong is on the later side of this scale. It is called Rock tea because it the tea grows in the gaps of the rocks on the cliffs of the Wuyi mountains
