From Rivers & Lakes Tea

The Yung family has once again graced us with an exemplar of solid high mountain tea. Fuller bodied and rounded than spring tea, the winter sprout pops out and scares you with a floral/bold combo—It also doesn’t lack any of the vegetal notes that spring tea offers. According to the Yungs, cooler temperatures between the fall harvesting period (August) and the winter harvesting period (early November-late December) cause the leaves to grow more slowly resulting in a thicker leaf that is full of the stuff that makes tea so tasty. Similar to our spring offering this high mountain tea hails from Long Feng Xia which sits at an elevation of around 1600m. High altitude combined with cooler temperatures during the winter season produce a classic Taiwanese oolong tea with a bold twist.

2020 Winter Shan Lin Xi Oolong

Rivers & Lakes Tea

6.0g, 100 mL gaiwan, Brita water, 212f

dry leaf smells like classic Taiwanese oolong: floral and bright

wet leaves: sweet floral, reminiscent of Bath and Body Works Sweet Pea lol. nice bright green.

5s: light sweet, floral, vegetal. bit of mint cooling note in aftertaste

8s: bitter note that transitions to a floral, then mint note. something slightly coconut & crushed leaves as well.

6s: an extension of previous, but less bitter. more crushed leaves and mint. the last steep and this one make this one seem like something akin to Philosykos, if that were a tea and not a perfume, haha

8s: slight sweetness reappears. No bitter, just a slight dryness then mint aftertaste.

15s: similar to before, coconut-like notes, then mint.

Proceeded to cold brew, not because the tea ran out of steam, but lighter oolongs are just not my favorite. cold brew wasn’t really complex, but a strong ginger note appeared.
