Rougui (Taiwan)

 

Rougui is a tightly rolled Oolong from Taiwan, not to be confused with the Wu Yi Oolong with the same name! The aroma of this tea is pleasantly sweet, with notes of gently toasted grains and spices, along with honeysuckles and orchids. This mellow tea brings a combination of sugarcane, floral, and spiced fruit notes making it a very warm and soothing Oolong. This is definitely the tea you want to drink on a cool day when you find yourself wishing for spring flowers!
