This garden is one of our first microlots of 2016 the farmer only produces 3 kilograms per year.  It recently won 2 gold stars at Europe’s Superior Tastes awards.  

Our farmer told us that she fired the Huanna as an experimental batch during Ali Shan’s off-season as a tribute to one of her favorite varietal styles, Formosa Bai Hao.  

When we visited this garden it was especially meaningful as coffee trees grew in-between the young tea trees.  The aromas were incredible as the coffee flowers opened the tea leaves absorbed the aromas surrounding it. 

It is difficult to classify the Huanna Small Leaf.  To go by oxidation alone, it sits at a gently attained 50-60%, which is generally classified as an oolong.
