Default Bai Hao Oolong

I understand that Bai Hao is harvested in the summer. Does anyone know when
the tea typically hits the market?

Hits the market ... in the States? It's already on the market in Taiwan.

Ross,

Sorry - I meant the US, although the way markets work today I can't imagine
a significant delay between the two.

Have you tried this year's tea? What do you think?

Dean

Hi Dean,

A friend served me some new Bai Hao last week - superb. Different from
other harvests? I would have to do a side by side comparison to really
tell.

i went to a tea estate where we made white tip oolong, and it is
amazing after the fermentation and initial drying and then rolling it
seems to pull the white hairs out/and up and the tea turns a little
white.. it is made of several colors if it is a good bai
hao-red-white-green-black-brown or yellow? i forget but i think it is
5 colors all together?
anyone know?
