From Drink Tea Co

Si Ji Chun, or Four Seasons of Spring is one of the most prolific tea cultivars of the last thirty years. The name implies a robust plant that can be harvested each season as though it were springtime. Si Ji Chun has become one of the most popular oolong teas in Taiwan with both farmers and tea drinkers.

Its presentation is quintessential Taiwanese oolong; a low oxidation green oolong rolled into compact pearls. It brews up with a light and refreshing taste filled with natural floral aroma. Be sure to invite guests to smell the gaiwan once this tea has been rinsed with hot water!

Category: Oolong
Oxidation: 10-15%

四季春/4 Seasons of Spring

4.8g, 100mL gaiwan

Green oolong per description and brewed at 212f and timed as advised. Interesting.

Brita filtered water off the boil.

Like most Taiwanese oolongs, seems to be rolled fairly tight.
Dry leaves have a sweet, lightly toasted aroma, reminiscent in ways of a Jin Xuan. There is a slight smoke that is muted.

30s: smoke at forefront of wet leaves. Wow! strong, with slight floral sweetness. tastes like a light Jin Xuan that I’ve tried in the past, but w/ a hint of smoke. Tampered sweetness.

40s: similar as before. very light sweet aftertaste. something reminds me of tomato here, but not quite vegetal.

1 min. 40s: not much different from before. also a sort of mint-like note. Sometimes oolongs blossom in later steepings, but I didn’t continue. Relegated to the overnight cold brew bottle.

cold brew: sweet fruit notes with smoke. End notes resembling a light roast coffee, which I found interesting.
