Huang Jin Gui, translated as "Golden Turtle" or "Golden Cassia" in English, is a type of Chinese oolong tea with a distinct flavor and aroma. Hailing from the Anxi County in Fujian Province, Huang Jin Gui is renowned for its unique characteristics, which are achieved through specific processing techniques.
The tea leaves of Huang Jin Gui are typically large and twisted, showcasing a mix of green and yellow colors. The name "Golden Turtle" is thought to be inspired by the tea's golden liquor and the shape of its leaves, which may resemble the curved back of a turtle.
In terms of flavor, Huang Jin Gui oolong tea is known for its floral notes, often described as having a sweet and lingering taste with hints of orchid and osmanthus flowers. The tea undergoes a moderate level of oxidation during processing, placing it between green and black teas on the oxidation spectrum. This results in a balanced and aromatic cup that captures the essence of the tea's terroir.
Tea enthusiasts often appreciate Huang Jin Gui for its pleasant aroma, complex flavor profile, and the skillful craftsmanship involved in its production. Whether enjoyed during a traditional Chinese tea ceremony or in a more casual setting, Huang Jin Gui stands as a testament to the diversity and excellence found within the world of oolong teas.
