From Taiwan Sourcing

Since our Imperial Lalashan Jade Oolong was a great hit in spring of 2015, we felt obligated to offer the winter version as well. The Lalashan tea region has a special character that is absolutely different from other high mountain tea regions. The same intangible feeling on the tongue and in the mouth is obvious present as in the Spring version, but this time with that special character of Winter.

This winter, we invite you to taste all of our Lalashan Jade Oolongs side by side and experience the difference between the two seasons. Not only do we think everyone will agree this tea is a worthy addition to our Lalashan teas collection, but we also think that Lalashan will soon become as well-known a region as Lishan, Da Yu Ling and Fu Shou Shan. Why not also consider comparing our Lalashan to these famous teas as well?

This tea was quite good. It had a sweet note from the start. The note reminded me of the white nectarines I got from the store last week, but without the intense sweetness to it. This is one good tea. This one was not cheap, I forget what I paid. I think this was the most expensive tea I bought from Taiwan Sourcing this time around. I would definitely buy it again next harvest. I bought 75g so I am not likely to run out before they produce another harvest of the stuff.

I steeped this tea ten times in a 150ml gaiwan with 7g leaf and 190 degree water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min. The tea was not finished but I have had a lot of tea this morning so I stopped.

I recently received many order of this tea and have not tried it yet. Glad to hear it’s a good one. Did it strike you as high in caffeine?

Can’t say I noticed the caffeine either way. I stop caffeine early in the day due to insomnia. I had this one fairly early in the day.

I am definitely a fan of Lala region teas smile emoticon The initial wet leaf aroma is incredibly rich and fruity. I wanted to leave my face buried in the gaiwan. I did brief steeps with boiling water. Light nectar-like flavors emerged alongside subtle fruitiness. As I steeped the tea more and more the fruity and floral qualities developed fully and very satisfyingly. I enjoyed this tea from start to finish and thought the leaf material was also very beautiful. Happy tasty tea!
