Finest Formosa Oolong Tea, Lot # 115
This tea is one of our tea master’s creations and is one of our most popular teas. Of course, the popular price helps but don’t let this fool you. This is by no means a cheap tea. One sip of this smooth, fruity nectar with hints of caramelized roasted nuts with convince you to make it your everyday mid-afternoon soother. The inexpensive nature of this tea comes from choosing to work with mechanically harvested leaves instead of hand picked leaves. In the case of a low oxidized, green style oolong, this might not be the best choice since it renders a sappy taste to the cup. In the case of a roasted tea, like here, the twigs and stems which are found in mechanical cuts actually help build a distinctive nutty character to the brew, much like it is the case in Japanese Hojicha tea. Our master’s 3 generations of knowledge is showcased here in bringing out all the fruitiness the Si Ji Chun hybrid can propose and finishes it to render a smooth cup with no dryness or tartiness. Simply charming.
