From Taiwan Sourcing

This high mountain Jade oolong is from the highest part of Wu She area which is located at 1700 meters above sea level called Gao Feng. The tea tree of this tea was planted at a relatively rocky soil compared to other tea plantation, which makes this a interesting and solid representation for winter high mountain oolong. Although this season does not have most perfect weather conditions for tea from high elevation tea such as Da Yu Ling area, the location of Gao Feng from a lower elevation proved its value by its quality and price.
The tea has a very interesting character from the spring tea in 2015. Inherit its significant taste again this year, but with an interesting hint of “winter rhythm.” (If you have no idea of what “winter rhythm” is, please definitely try our affordable and tasty “Winter Rhythm Oolong.” ). Such character could only be found on winter oolong, but it surprisingly shows up in this spring tea, which makes it not only more enjoyable, but even more interesting to savour.

Thank you so much for this sample! I would buy more often, though a lot of the teas they have that I prefer tend to be pricier. I wanted to try the Luxurious Jade sample, but reading some of the notes made me hesitate a little bit. So I ordered from them anyway for finding a good daily oolong. I bought two teas that definitely fit that description, and one that I got in five ounces that was pretty excellent. Looking at you, Winter Rhythm 2015.

So I got this one with great consideration. I pretty much think the exact same thing that Big Daddy does. It’s very light, clean, green, and crisp with a solid varieties of fluffy florals in a body of fresh spinach. It did get me a little bit of a buzz bordering on tea drunk that was pretty nice-though that would be the main reason why I’d buy from Taiwan Sourcing-they’re jade’s have a better tendency to get me tea drunk.

If only I could find a sweeter oolong with strong fruit, florals, body, and honey notes for a daily price. A sample of this brings a smile on my face, however, for its clarity and lack of astringency. Just a little too grassy, but just sweet enough.

For those reading this, this is a very green oolong. For those who have never had oolong but like green tea, this is not a bad place to start because a lot of the greens and florals apply to the broad spectrum of this tea.

Bright, light, right. Excellent everyday tea reasonable priced with the flavors most look to in a Jade. Sweet, clean, heady aromas, hint of butter, spinach and camellia. Came as a free sample, with a sweet note.
