Jade Oolong (Cuiyu)
Production area: Zhushan, Nantou, Taiwan
Harvest time: Spring 2012
This beautiful (and aptly named) Oolong is also known as Taiwan No. 13, Jade Oolong is the creation of Professor Wu Zhen Ze who named it after his mother (Jin Xuan is named after his grandmother), one of the 2 most important woman in his life.
If you are new to Oolongs, Jade Oolong is an excellent starting point with an accessible, pleasant taste that is appeals to novices yet remains interesting to experienced drinkers.
Light, flowery taste with a refreshing aftertaste
Clear light yellow.
It is not hard to imagine why Jade Oolong is named after the creator’s mother- it has a comforting quality- sets all those who come into contact with her at ease.
An amicable aura that only a mother can exude.
