Reward Points on purchase: 3 Details

A hybrid of the Taiwanese Research Experimental Station, TRES #13.

This is a rather rare cultivar not only for Thailand, but also for Taiwan. It is used for producing light oolongs and pouchongs (baozhongs). In Thailand, there is only one small plantation of Cui Yu bushes that belongs to an organic oolong producer we've been cooperating with for a long time.

This tea is quite different from regular Thai oolongs with a fruity sweet profile. The taste is dominated by a floral palette reminiscent of the high quality Tie Guan Yin.

Thai Cui Yu has a powerful, oily and rounded flavor, with a wide range of undertones and strong “umami”. The tea can withstand many steepings.

In the foreground are lilacs, lilies of the valley, and jasmine. In addition to floral tones, a berry melody sounds brightly on the background, red currants are intertwined with cherries here. The aftertaste contains mint candy and the same sweet and sour berries. The most attentive tea-lovers will see light chocolate-woody tones.

I must note that 2020 was a very successful year for oolongs in Thailand, so I recommend that you do not delay getting to know them.
