 Originating from Taiwan, this Oolong is also known as "Green Oolong" due to its lightly oxidized state. Cui Yu varietal is the most easily forgotten varietal in the tea world. You don't hear people say "Yes I am attending a tea ceremony that features Cui Yu today," because Cui Yu is very commonly ignored tea varietal today. It is not as cool as Qin Xing Oolong, nor is it well-known as its sister Jin Xuan (Golden Leaf).
