The Cui Yu is an oolong tea from Taiwan and is also called a blue-green tea. This tea comes from an exclusive Taiwan teagarden in the Alishan Mountains. Here it is grown according to traditional methods and especially selected by Madame Tseng for De Eenhoorn.
An oolong is a half fermented tea. This tea has an oxidation of 25%. This plant has large leaves that are rolled and can be picked from late May to mid-August. After the harvest, these are spread out in the sun to wither. The leaves are regularly shaken and rolled by hand, to break the edges. At these places oxidation will start. As soon as the edges of the leaves turn red, they are cooked for 15 minutes in a pan. This will stop the process of fermenting.
