From Mountain Stream Teas

We are happy to introduce a tea from Wu Jie, a very new terroir just outside of Puli, Taiwan. This winter tea is sweet, crisp and buttery and has all the best aspects of Taiwanese high mountain oolongs without the high price tag!

Wu Jie is located between the Pear Mountain and Shanlinxi growing areas this tea really has the best of those terroirs. The rich, deep, thick minerality of Shanlinxi is mixed with the higher fruity notes and lingering aftertaste of Pear Mountain to make this a great tea for those that love high mountain oolongs!

Status: Tested Agrochemical Free
Cultivar: QinXin
Oxidization: 35%

I had half of a sample packet of this inside an empty Adagio fandom mini tin. I was shocked that there was no entry on Steepster… I feel bad being the only one to write a note for it, since I’m drinking it Western style, and lazily at that. Looking at the website, it looks like I ordered in March of last year, so at least it’s not that terribly old…?

Regardless, this is super delicious. I love the amount of oxidation here, it’s such a good middle ground between too green and floral (for me) and highly oxidized. It retains some of those nice green and fresh mineral notes but has a lovely rich bready and dried fruit flavor too. There are also some strong honeyed fig notes which are to die for! Maybe a hint of cinnamon as well? And of course, the lovely thick and silky mouthfeel that is a hallmark of oolong.

Nom nom nom!
