From Mountain Stream Teas

An amazing example of masterful tea production, this one confused us when we first tried it out. We couldn’t figure out which cultivar it was! As an extremely rare 65% oxidized oolong with rich dark florals, sweet raisin/fruit/strawberry notes, its overall smoothness, taste and mouthfeel didn’t fit with our experience of any familiar Taiwanese high mountain tea cultivars.

The problem was that we never expected a 4 Seasons Oolong to turn out this good! Rarely grown at such high altitudes, and even more rarely turned into a red oolong at this oxidization level, we were blown away by the skill with which this tea was produced. Rare material produced with rare skill, this one is sure to become the favorite of many!

From an organic producer in the up and coming Jade Mountain growing region, we are sure this tea will be the favorite of many. We are happy to be able to support organic producers in the region as well!

2024 sipdown no. 32

I would say the description is spot on: dark florals and sweet raisin. The only thing is that the flavour is lighter than I was anticipating. I steeped 5g last night and ended up adding my remaining 5g to the resteep leaves to get more flavour overall. This was my favourite cup, but so much leaf!
