From Single Origin Teas

This Four Season Oolong is grown in Taiwan’s Nantou region at an altitude between 600 – 800m; Nantou as a region produces a lot of green teas and Oolong in Taiwan. Nantou is also known for its Dong Ding Oolong. Because of its lower altitude, the teas there are often a little more bold than some of the higher mountain teas. The Four Season Oolong is a more lightly fermented Oolong and has a nice extended finish. Nantou is in the central region of Taiwan where the mountains really jump up out of the land creating a beautiful landscape.

With a light floral tastes, this Four Seasons Oolong gives a full mouth feel with a nice clean finish.

I’m sitting at a beautiful bed and breakfast on vacation, curled up listening to it rain and sipping on this. I didn’t bring my travel gaiwan this time, so I’m enjoying it western style. Delicious. Creamy. Floral. Beautiful. This is the hands down best for seasons oolong I’ve had.

I will be ordering this for sure.

Cameron B.

I’m glad to hear you’re relaxing, and I hope you’re having a nice vacation so far. :)

boychik

have a great time, rain or shine ;)

Single Origin Teas

Glad to hear you enjoyed this one! I love gardening; I have a massive Gardenia bush right next to my door. Because the Gardenia was blooming while I was tasting this tea, I can’t tell if the Gardenia I taste in the tea is really there, or if it is just in my memories of the tea!

Cheri

I couldn’t say if it was Gardenia for sure, but it’s definitely floral. Of course, now I’m out of the sample that I had, so I can’t try again to identify it.

I need to order more. This will give me an excuse to order more tea, and to get the teas that I liked from the (Mostly) Unflavored TTB that I didn’t want to order on their own.

Single Origin Teas

When you place your order, just write your username Cheri and a couple samples that you would like to try. :)

Cheri

Thanks!

Single Origin Teas

Your order will be shipping out tomorrow! :)

Cheri

I just got the order today. Woo! I’m excited. I think I’ll have the four seasons tonight after dinner for my first session with my new tea pet. The envelope was pretty damaged during shipping and torn open on one end. There were the four teas I ordered and three samples. Since I only requested two samples, I assume the third was a treat, and that nothing was lost. Thank you so much!

Single Origin Teas

Yep, looks like all the teas arrived! I’m sorry to hear about the envelope, can you see if any of the tea packages (or tea) got damaged?

Cheri

The tea packages themselves were just fine. It was only the big envelope that was damaged.

Single Origin Teas

I guess USPS isn’t as great as I’ve been thinking it is. :/

Cheri

These things happen occasionally. No worries! Where it did rip the worse was on the ends, so it might be worth it to reinforce those with tape?

Single Origin Teas

Yep, that’s a good idea. I might also see about finding some stronger material.

sample provided for review thanks Awkward Soul for hooking me up!

This is one of the tastiest green oolongs I’ve had. Super floral with buttery sweetness and total “pudding mouth” effect! If you like them green and floral this ones for you!

Cheri

Sounds delicious. I need to make sure this one isn’t in the (M)UTTB…..

Stephanie

I have a little more. I will send it with your Manistee Moonrise :D

Single Origin Teas

haha glad to hear the samples are migrating around!

Single Origin Teas

We’d given a separate sample to Awkward Soul (and then a postage paid packaged envelope with another sample for Awkward Soul to pick someone to mail it to). So it wasn’t apart of the (M) UTTB.

Stephanie

Right, I was Awkward Souls chosen reviewer she shared with. I sent the rest to Cheri in the mail today so you will get 2 reviews in one! Thanks again Single Origin Teas, and if you ever want more reviews I’m always happy to taste :)

Single Origin Teas

Sure thing Stephanie! I’ve really enjoyed the travelling tea box so hopefully in the future we will keep doing them at least. :) The best way to try different teas is through samples.

Stephanie

Yeah, I’d love to get in on one of those traveling boxes in the future! I missed out this time :)

Cheri

Wow, Stephanie! Thanks so much!!!

Cheri

An elegant, buttery sweet milk, liliac and lilies and snap pea vegetal oolong! I personally prefer a more oxidized or roasted oolong, but this green oolong was pretty good. I love the thick flavor and the high volume of steeps I got with gongfu short infusions (9!). Four Seasons oolong was pretty sweet – I think this would be a great dessert tea for the tea drinker that prefers unflavored teas.

Love the lilac and lilies tasting notes. :) You must have a great palate if you were still detecting things on brew number 9!

I just absolutely adore the appearance of most green oolongs -individual, jade green leaves curled up into beads. And this one is just like that, too. It is so easy to measure out tea leaves shaped in this way.

Since I am a huge fan of green oolongs, even though I definitely haven’t had all of them, I thought there wouldn’t be too much that could surprise me about this one. Yet, the floral notes of this bright and sunny yellow concoction seemed quite unique! There was something delicate, but not necessarily I’m-striving-to-find-the-notes mild, about it. It is definitely not as fragrant and perfumey as the dong ding from Eco-Cha, it seems in some ways like its shy sister.

It is a delicious oolong and the only reason my rating is a little lower than I initially planned is because most of its sophistication is gone on the second steep. While second steep was strong, it just tasted pretty mundane and generic-kind-of-oolong-like. Perhaps I should try different temperature / time for the resteep next time?
