From Taiwan Tea Crafts

Many times we get asked what is our favorite high-mountain tea. To be fair, we like them all, but if we were to name one that we keep going back to for a rewarding experience, this one will be on the top of the list. Consistency is definitely a sign of quality, both in the growing practices as well as the craftsmanship behind the transformation of the leaf into tea. Our Shibi collaborator has done it again with this superb Lot 874. This is our seventh winter offering from this producer, and probably his best to date. The clean crisp feel of this tea is still present with the mellowness and balance one can expect from a winter offering. The liqueur peaks with succulent notes of spring flowers and smooth vegetal nuances that culminate with a long and smooth finish. The nice thick leaves farmed responsibly are very generous and will give many satisfying infusions of joy in the cup. This tea complies to EU standards in residual pesticide content – one of the strictest norm in the world, presently. You simply can’t go wrong with this tea!

Sipdown. My last few teaspoons of this tea were getting stale but ambient brewing rescued it. Despite the freezing cold and endless snow we endured in Chicago today, it was really refreshing to drink this over ice. By the magic of room temperature steeping, the sour, stale seaweed taste was transformed into a floral bouquet in my cup. So delicious that I made two ambient brews and finished off what was left of this tea.

I must say cold/ambient brewing has been a godsend for less than perfect teas and those past their freshness. I’ve been able to salvage so many teas that I might have otherwise thrown out this way. Highly recommend giving cold brewing a try before giving up on your less loved teas.

Thanks for the cold brewing tip – I had no idea that would make a difference… I wonder if it would work on the flavor of green tea?

Definitely. The senchas I bought last spring weren’t all that impressive but tasted amazing cold brewed. 2g to 8oz of water is the ratio I use. I steep it at room temperature for 2 hours, giving the leaves a stir 5 minutes before straining and then add a few ice cubes. Give it a try and let me know how it goes!

Good to know – thanks. I will try it sometime! Maybe even brew normally at the same time to taste-test side by side.
