From Peony Tea S.

Production area: Zhushan, Nantou, Taiwan
Harvest time: Spring 2012

Overview:

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.

Taste:

Light, flowery taste with a refreshing aftertaste

Liquor:

Clear light yellow.

Personality:

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.

I received this sample today as part of Peony Tea’s shipping test. They graciously sent along this one, a puerh and a yellow tea but this is the only one I am familiar with so I thought I would try it out first. The shipping took just under two weeks from Singapore to Canada (which is impressive!) and everything arrived safe and sound. They also included a wooden measuring sppon which I am actually quite enjoying. It feels more like tea ceremony than my typical metal spoon. : )

The dry aroma of this tea was that of a very green oolong, it reminded me of some Tai Guan Yin I have had in the past. Sweet smelling, with a hint of hay or grass. Some sort of plant life. I am at work so I steeped this up western style in my perfect tea mug, resulting in a lightly yellow liquor with a green tinge. Steeped, the aroma reminds me of boiled corn. Mmm – surprisingly appealing, considering my usual tastes (I’m more of a dark oolong or black tea person).

First sips are surprisingly sweet, light with a lingering taste and aroma that I still find reminiscent of peaches and cream corn. There is no bitterness at all, but the flavour stays with you, light though it is. It has a cumulative strength of flavour and makes me want to keep sipping. Very nice! : ) I’m impressed it doesn’t end up tasting too “green” as that can be a real turn-off for me, but this works.

That’s exciting! I wonder if mine arrived today too? Sounds like a unique oolong, yum!
