From Mountain Stream Teas

Si Ji Chuen (4 Seasons Oolong) was named for its ability to yield consistent tea crops all year round. It is also pretty tasty. If the tea is made well, a nice vegetal upfront, floral mid mouth and a lingering sweet subtle spice in the aftertaste greet those who choose this brew. Another nice benefit of this tea is that it is pretty cheap. While it is no classic high-mountain oolong, this lightly oxidized batch fully expresses the best parts of this cultivar. And at this price, it is a great daily drinker!

Worth it for the price. I got the Spring 2022 harvest of this tea from my recent Mountain Stream Teas order, and it generally is quite a nice tea. Beautiful rolled leaves with a rich and complex aroma both in the dry and wet leaf. This tea had a relatively vibrant liquor with a very nice flavour to boot. Its flavour isn’t the most complex but it really is quite well rounded if not oversteeped. The tea had a decent texture with a decent complexity and range of tastes as the session goes on. Nice character paired with a very nice, refreshing finish tops off the plaudits for this tea. However, this tea lacked any noticeable cha-qi and the aftertaste was quite average. It also had slightly less than average steep longevity and can be quite tricky to brew it to a right balance. Overall, a nice, decent tea worth the price tag.

Thank you Cameron for sending this my way!

The immediate taste is a creaminess, followed closely by a vegetal taste mixed with a bit of a hay. It’s a nice cuppa, but perhaps not necessary to order. Nonetheless, always happy to have the opportunity to try new teas!
