From Taiwan Sourcing

Sometimes when you bump into a great tea, you just have to get it. This is how we secured this delicious Wu She region tea. Not too famous among the Taiwanese Oolong world, but definitely a great tea producing area for its proper elevation and environment. This particular tea was carefully processed by some of the most experienced tea masters in Taiwan.

The material of it was superior as well thanks to the “beheaded” (剉頭) tea tree. By beheading the main branch of the tea plants, the nutrition will be more focused on the rest of the leaves which will deliver a very powerful sweetness in the final production. The downside is that the quantity will be decreased and hence raises the price of the tea, but the result is just perfect. Combined with this year’s drought, this Wu She should wholeheartedly surprise and satisfy any tea lover.

Knowing that I needed to take a new oolong to work, I picked this out because it was my free sample.
At first I looked at it like: thankfully I took this to work because it looks like ‘free sample’ quality to me.
So I began brewing these small beat up pieces of oolong that I wouldn’t consider to look good. The first steep was full of that sweet oolong aroma! The mouth feel was in that high zone, not the best but it is clearly noticeable. As for the texture, it’s there. This might be a bit on the salty side, but once you get through six+ steeps you will see that there are multiple leaf inside that stem that looks like it’s holding a ripped up leaf. I even found one to have 5 leaves coming from it :)
This was probably one of the better samples I’ve ever received from a vendor. This was unexpected though as it doesn’t look or smell like what it taste and smells like when it brews. I’ll be looking at the winter crop for my next order for sure because if it has some of that more woodsy notes within the backtone of floral… that’d be sweet.
