Buddha Palm FSP Oolong


Citrus sour and toasty baked

SKU: N/A Category: Tags: ,


Buddha palm or hand or Fo Shou normally is a ball-type oolong.  This one is a strip leaf oolong that has been carefully rolled to bring out the citrus notes.  An old but not common varietal in Taiwan that originated from China, it is a traditional charcoal-roasted oolong that is a great example of a nod to traditional methods.  Below are my recommendations for a 5 x infusion but this oolong can give so much more.  Only a few kilos are available on this one.  I wish I had bought more!
