“Nothing is so beautiful as spring.” As though inspired by Hopkins’ ode, this silky smooth oolong boasts an exuberant bouquet of spring flavors. Yielding an impressive four to six harvests a year, it’s no wonder this cultivar is known as Si Ji Chun, or “four seasons of spring.”

Admittedly “Four Seasons” isn’t really my favourite style of oolong and I don’t have a lot of extensive experience with this style but I thought this was a pretty good one, for what it’s worth. I brewed it Western style because I was at work and I didn’t have a large enough sample to brew it Gongfu in the one gaiwan I’ve got in my office…

It was smooth, light to medium bodied with a soft floral flavour and both a buttery mouthfeel and flavour. Simple – not overly complex, but decent flavours. I’ve been enjoying my exploration of P&T’s offerings so far – they’ve been a mixed bag in terms of quality, but this one was nice.

Milky, creamy and buttery with floral notes – I guess that would be the gardenias, though it also reminds me of lily of the valley.
