Medium-oxidized and stronger medium-roasted Taiwanese Guifei-type oolong. The leaves come from the hand-picked JinXuan cultivar from Mr. Chang’s gardens, located in the ZhuShan area, Nantou, 450-500m.a.s.l..

The tea was harvested and processed in June 2022 and then roasted in February 2023.

This is an unusual Gui Fei in that it is not very sweet, rather bitter and vegetal. It has some obvious objective quality, but I am not sure how much I like it personally.

Its dry leaf aroma reminds me of baked fruit (apple pie and pear), roasted nuts, apricots, magnolia flowers as well as shellfish. Wet leaves smell more floral (a bit like Mediterranean bushes), herbaceous (thyme), and earthy.

The liquor is bitter and biting with a cooling aftertaste, but it doesn’t bring so much engagement in terms of particular flavours.
