From Taiwan Sourcing

This is one of the most surprising oolong tea from this spring. Under the supervision of Taiwan Sourcing, we finally created a Ying Xiang varietal tea that properly demonstrates the potential of this varietal, and we think this is finally the tea that fits the meaning of its varietal name – “Welcoming Aroma”

This is also the tea that proves “higher (elevation) is not always better”. What truly matters is the clean material and mature understanding of processing both of which are embodied in this tea. This Ying Xiang is cultivated in Dazuan, a place which only has an elevation of about 350 meters. You will not be able to tell the elevation is that “low” thanks to the mature processing technique and refined drying from charcoal roaster (which is the same on all our other oolongs from this season). The plantation is being properly managed by Mr. Yang and his family, who grow organically and are masters of processing tea as well.

The result of their hard work is a pungently aromatic rolled oolong tea with a soup that is strong but not overstimulating to the body. This tea makes you feel colourful yet relaxed from head to toe. This tea’s green and lush character reminded us of a Taiwan Blue Magpie, its feathers reflecting back the emerald lush forest hues of it’s habitat. Since tea cannot be blue, we can only name it “Emerald Magpie” to fit its appearance better.
