#630 The Fancy Superior grade is bestowed only upon exquisite, tippy teas such as the Taifu. Known as “Five Color Tea,” northern Taiwanese oolongs are oxidized around 60% and take on various hues of brown—from beige to sienna. The Taifu is a heady cup, a nuanced sketch of wood and stewed plum. Infuse multiple times.
Preparation: 3 g tea leaves (2 heaping teaspoons) per 8 oz cup of filtered boiling water. Allow to brew 4 min.
