Yesterday afternoon Tea was this lovely loose leaf Magnolia Oolong from Harney & Sons, blended by Master Tea Blender, John Harney. I made enough tea cakes to last a year yesterday so we had something sweet to go with the tea.
The Feng Huang Mountains are located outside of the beautiful old monastery city of Chao Zhou. This area is located in the north of the Guangdong Province. They have made great teas there for centuries. This is a light oolong, and different from our regular Fenghuang Shuixian. The light floral flavors are a joy.
The leaves are just lovely.light brown and the aroma was fruity and floral. It is a lovely tea. The aroma is delicate and like all of Harney Teas, this one is smooth and was so good, I forgot the tea cake!
AS you can see it is light in color and has a delicateness about it that I found very nice. A very calming tea. I will definitely be getting more of this one! Perfect for all those Spring events!
