From Rishi Tea

Si Ji Chun is the local name of the Four Seasons Spring tea bush cultivar, which thrives at middle elevations in Taiwan’s central highlands and is prized for its fresh, long-lasting aromas of tropical flowers and fruits.

Tasting Notes: Aromatic and flavorful with notes of fresh-cut gardenia, freesia blossoms and tropical fruits

Ingredients: Oolong tea.

Additional Info: Oolong tea artisans, like boutique winemakers, bring forth the appellation characters of their teas through traditional crafting techniques. Each oolong tea’s distinctive style reflects its place of origin, vintage and tea bush cultivar.

Basic Brewing Guidelines:
Water Temperature: 195°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 teaspoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 2 minutes (1st infusion), 3 minutes (2nd infusion), 5 minutes (3rd infusion)

For the best infusions, we recommend brewing this tea in a Guywan.

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn’t recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

The dry leaves smell like someone sent me a bouquet of assorted flowers. Little round tightly rolled pellets of moss green.

Brewed; this tea is flowers, flowers, flowers!!!! Very Very very low roast ,,,love it!!!
It says on the package that this is Si Ji Chun style.

Not only do I taste and smell flowers, I taste tropical fruits such as Lychee fruit and melon.

I drank this with a lunch of avocado, Roma tomato, and sunflower sprouts on whole wheat bread and it paired very nicely. Then with fruit, it was amazing. Very great tea to pair with dessert.

Very amazing the differences in style and the many flavors that can be brought out of tea!!!!

This tea comes from central Taiwan.
