A smooth oolong with a sweet highly floral taste, perfect for those who love greener oolongs.
Produced from a unique cultivar developed in the producer's own research garden in Vietnam, by crossing two of Taiwan's most famous oolong cultivars; Jin Xuan (#12) and Cui Yu (#13), which I've named #12.5 in reference to the parents.
