From Mountain Stream Teas

We are happy to introduce a tea from Wu Jie, a very new terroir just outside of Puli, Taiwan. This winter tea is sweet, crisp and buttery and has all the best aspects of Taiwanese high mountain oolongs without the high price tag!

Wu Jie is located between the Pear Mountain and Shanlinxi growing areas this tea really has the best of those terroirs. The rich, deep, thick minerality of Shanlinxi is mixed with the higher fruity notes and lingering aftertaste of Pear Mountain to make this a great tea for those that love high mountain oolongs!

Elevation: 1300m

Status: Tested Agrochemical Free

Cultivar: QinXin

Oxidization: 35%

Season: November 28th, 2018

Method: Hand picked, processed on site, very small batch

Region: WuJie, Nantou

Recommend Brewing Style:

Gong Fu Style: 3-5g per 100ml, ~100C water, 30, 45, 60 then add 5-10 seconds steeps in gaiwan. Lasts 4-5+ steeps.

Western Style: 3g per 100ml, ~100c water for 3 minutes. Lasts 2-3 steeps.

Grandpa Style: Works Great!

I’m finding a lot of Mountain Stream Teas to be misses for me. The last 3-4 I brewed all tasted about the same- slightly vegetal, slightly bitter, but overall boring and similar. I’ve found they’re generally very weak, even using 10g of tea and just a few ounces of water. Not sure I would make a repeat purchase anytime soon.

That’s been my experience with Mountain Stream Teas too. I feel kinda bad for bashing them because I really admire the owner’s passion, honesty, and support for sustainable tea farming but many of the teas just haven’t been up to par. I did like their baozhong and some of their flavored oolongs though.

I feel bad swell. I always like supporting small businesses (especially ones that are passionate about their products), but it seems like they need to find different farms to source from.

The description of this tea sounded exciting: a new high mountain cultivar with the minerality of Shan Lin Xi and the fruitiness of Pear Mountain. However, it tasted more like a green tea than an oolong to me. It’s got a little butteriness to it but otherwise is vegetal and flat. The flavor didn’t evolve much, remaining constant for 5 steeps. Didn’t do a whole lot better cold steeped.

I wouldn’t mind if this were a green tea but as an oolong I found it pretty lifeless and bland. There was a little staleness in the smell so perhaps it was good back when it was fresh.
