 Honey, sweet flowers.

This tea is specifically only made in summer where the tea jassid (a common tea bug) grows when the weather is warmer. These insects suck on the juices of the tea causing a defensive reaction by the tea plant, producing monoterprene diol which gives the tea its unique flavour.

The injuries cause on the plant also start the oxidation of the tea producing sweet notes in the oolong process. This was originally done with the Oriental Beauty and replicated however the Oolong process is unique to this style of the tea maker.
