From Red Blossom Tea Company

Winter Formosa oolong teas are typically harvested at the beginning of November. Tea gathering begins at the highest elevation gardens and makes its way down, ahead of the plummeting temperatures as winter approaches.

From the same tea maker that crafted our spring San Lin Xi, our winter harvest was gathered early November 2012 from a tea garden only a couple hundred meters below peak. It is the last harvest of this tea for the year. Winter harvest Formosa oolongs are typically mild and light, with a smoother mouth feel than spring teas.

Because of heavy rains this season, most winter crop Formosa oolongs lack structure and depth. We selected this year’s tea after exhaustively cupping from different batches to ensure that the aromatic and fruit notes of the tea met our standards. This tea has the heavier, creamier mouth feel of a winter crop tea, with bright floral and citrus notes that is characteristic of San Lin Xi.

Review is for Spring 2013 batch. Quite good oolong, my favorite flavor profile. Butter/malted milk taste. Very resteepable. I may order this…
