Two Sisters is a Gui Fei, or partially bug-bitten tea, similar to Oriental Beauty. Production is extremely limited and dependent many factors, including season weather patterns; some years it cannot be produced. The farmer must very carefully maintain an ideal growing environment, fostering the migration of leaf-hoppers throughout the trees. These small insects drink tiny amounts of sap from the leaves, before moving on to other plants. This prompts the trees to produce enzymatic defense and the release of aromatic compounds, resulting in a very sweet, exceptionally fragrant tea.

Rolled leaves produce a hearty amber liquor that is honey sweet and nutty, similar to almonds. Effects are joyous and uplifting, resoundingly reaffirming and invigorating.
