From Taiwan Tea Crafts

We seem to always start and end the year with an exuberant expressive bouquet of liquid flowers like none other than our good friend Mr. Yi can make. We always turn to him for the best Si Ji Chun tea one can buy. His family, like ours, has been sowing the red earth of our community and rolling little green pearls of delight for generations now. Mr. Yi is one of the rare grower/producer in our community that is never content in making a commodity grade tea – which is the unfortunate reputation this type of tea has in Taiwan. He produces his Four Seasons with the same care and dedication as he would with a high-priced high-mountain oolong. It shows in each cup you will sip! Mr. Yi already knows what we like and he makes it a challenge to better his previous offering. We tend to always wait for his late winter productions since the leaves come from his best garden. This Lot 601 is just as expected: the lively character of this semi-wild strand simply tastes like happiness in a liquid form! This is a surprisingly expressive tea, very aromatic, with distinct fresh spring notes that evokes lilies of the valley and jasmine. It is very refreshing and fun to drink. Some people say it is very much like Chinese Anxi Tie Guan Yin. Most of the four season oolong tea is grown right here in our own Township of Mingjian in Nantou County, Taiwan. This area, at an elevation of up to 400 m above sea level, has the largest concentration of tea growers on this island and produces the largest quantity of tea in Taiwan.

This was a free sample that came with my last TTC order. It’s one of their budget oolongs and not a tea that I would ordinarily buy. However, this humble si ji chun surpassed my admittedly low expectations.

Upon opening the pouch, intense aromas of hyacinth and orchid filled my nostrils. Following a rinse, the aroma changed to sweet cream and coconut. The first steeping was very fruity with pineapple and notes of tropical fruit. The second steep brought orange blossom and coconut. The next two infusions were milky , with wildflower nectar and honeycomb. After the first 4 steeps, the tea fizzled out and didn’t really have much left to give. A little disappointing considering I can count on at least 7-8 steeps from my gao shans, but then again this one costs far less.

Overall, this is a good daily drinker for those who like a fresh, floral focused tea. The only knock on it is it doesn’t go the distance of other teas, but at such a low price point you really can’t complain.

Hm, I might look at that for daily drinking. Too bad I do not need 8 oz of it. 22 bucks though is a bargain for that amount.

Daylon R Thomas

I wonder if it words western and grandpa style for a tumbler.

LuckyMe

Yeah, you can’t beat the price per gram of this tea but I’d go with one that has more staying power. What-Cha’s Taiwan jade oolong has a similar flavor profile and gets you twice as many infusions.

I western steeped my last teaspoon of this tea and it was pretty good, although fairly light.

Daylon R Thomas

Thanks! That jade oolong is one of the few daily drinkers that I’ve really liked…though I end up getting more of the Li Shan anyway lol.
