From Taiwan Sourcing

Don’t be confused, this is not a Wu Yi Rock Tea from mainland China, but instead a unique varietal that was brought to Taiwan around 200 years ago. Until today it is difficult for us to tell which exact varietal was brought from Wuyi region of China back then, so this varietal has earned its unique name to commemorate its origin ─ “Wu Yi” as a result.

It tastes similar to Fujian Wu Yi Rock Tea and yet remains uniquely Taiwanese in processing and character.

I find the aroma of this tea intoxicating. Both in the prepped yixing pot (dry), and wet leaf (hot). It is such a unique tea in taste and history and I love steeping it gongfu style.

I’ve totally been remiss at posting notes. Sorry all! I enjoyed this tea for the second time today while baking cookies. It’s roasty and creamy, and gets slightly sweeter in later infusions. It kind of reminded me of the dong ding I had from Tea Ave, but not fruity really. It tasted yummy with the cookies and I got several steps out of it. My gaiwan was bursting with the leaves as they unfurled. Thanks to boychik for convincing me to pick this up. It’s very cozy.

Yet another tea I need to figure better brewing parameters for. Gong fu with a ten second rinse, followed by 30 seconds increasing by fifteen, 30, and a whole minute. Very nutty, roasted, a little bit vegetal, and very sweet. After 30 seconds, it almost reminded me of sugar cookies. A lot like a roasted Tie Guan Yin. Nice, but could be more impressive. I had to be missing something.

The second time was Grandpa Style to get more of a spectrum. Very rarely have I tasted such vivid rainbows of weed. So, epic fail. I’m still missing something. I expected better, but I must be blind to what I wanted.
