For a long time, this tea is grown not for domestic consumption but for export only, mainly to Western Europe.
Also called "white-tipped oolong," this tea has white tips on the spear-like leaves and the hue of the leaves comes in five colors: white, orange, red, green and black.
The tea is primarily grown in Hsinchu of Taiwan and harvested only once a year. The reason is that only in June, the native green leaf-hoppers will suck on the young leaves, and thereby, resulting in a strong lemon and honey aroma in the tea. Interestingly, the more leaves bitten by these insects, the better the tastes becomes.
