Roasted Buddha's Hand
Buddha's Hand, or Fo Shou is a cultivar of Camillia Sinensis that originally comes from Fujian, China. However, it can be found in Pinglin and Alishan. From what I have read, it is not a common cultivar found in Taiwan, but I have seen it a lot when I was there.
This tea gets its name because it has citrus and bergamot flavors also found in the citrus fruit of the same name. The size of the tea leaves also contributes to the naming of the tea.
Our Roasted Buddha's Hand was produced in the winter of 2015, aged a little to mellow out, and then roasted.
