From Eco-Cha Artisan Teas

This batch of tea was made from a combination of organically grown Tsui Yu and Four Seasons Spring tea leaves. These tea types are most commonly produced as a “green Oolong” where the leaves are lightly oxidized and left unroasted. The floral and herbal characters of these teas have been mellowed by substantial oxidation but maintain their complex aroma and smooth, palatable, refreshing character as a more traditionally made Oolong.

These leaves were infused with organic hand-picked Gardenia flowers in a post production process. The distinct yet compatible qualities of a flower essence combined with a rich, well oxidized Oolong character offer a very interesting and satisfying brew. We’ve discovered that this tea works equally well as a cold brew or a hot brew. The beauty of this batch of tea is that you can sit down and brew it Gongfu style and marvel at the intricacies of a traditionally made Oolong combined with a flower essence to produce a heady, complex, almost magical brew. Or you can just toss some of these leaves and flowers in your water bottle and let it sit for a couple hours at room temperature or in the fridge overnight, and enjoy it all day. And it only gets better as the day goes on!

Backlog.

When it comes to scented teas, some flowers translate into better flavor than others. I was excited to try this blend because I love the fragrance of gardenia and had never experienced it in tea form before.

I brewed 4g in a 120ml gaiwan using almost boiling water for 1 minute, adding 20s to each subsequent steep. In a heated gaiwan, the tea leaves have an alluring aroma of perfume and flowers. The taste is like jasmine and rose combined, sweet with notes of warm spice. It reminds me of a high grade jasmine green tea but lacks the clean and delicate taste of a real jasmine tea. It’s pleasant enough though not particularly remarkable. The heavenly, lustrous aroma of gardenia flowers unfortunately can’t be found in the taste.

Hi LuckyMe,
I also like scene of gardnia. I suggest you try some good oolong leaves originally have thr aroma of gardernia rather than the one with mixed oolong leaves and flowers.
It is fatastic and so far becomes the one of the favrite oolong leaves.
