Ruan Zhi (軟枝), literally "soft stem" is a variety of oolong tea developed by the Taiwan Tea Experiment Station (TTES). Other common titles are Bai Lu and TTES #17. The tea is similar to Qing Xin (青心), literally "green heart", and therefor often mistaken for it. The taste is light and is often referred to orchids.
