From Taiwan Tea Crafts

If you’ve tried our our Lot 274 from winter 2013 from this same garden, you’ll be salivating at the thought of being re-acquainted with this nectar, and rightly so! This tea is one of those off-the-beaten-track little gems that we are thrilled to find from time to time. The clean crisp feel of this tea is still present with the additional olfactive and gustatory material one can expect from a spring offering. The liqueur peaks with succulent notes of spring flowers and smooth vegetal nuances that culminate with a short and smooth finish. The nice thick leaves farmed to comply to EU standards in minimal pesticide use are very generous and will give many satisfying infusions of joy in the cup.

I have never had tea from Shibi before, but I am really excited to try it… especially because the name reminds me of Shiba, as in Shiba Inu, the dog breed… which reminds me of my favorite internet mascot… Doge.

But aside from that… the scent of this tea after the dry leaves have sat a moment in a warm gaiwan is just incredible. It’s really rich with gooey notes of honey and cinnamon. There’s a floral glimmer to it as well, but mostly I’m reminded of fresh baked sopapillas drizzled with warm honey.

After giving the first infusion a taste… hold on, somebody here wants to say something… I’m going to let him take over and write the review.

MUCH CREAM. Such smell! Very flower. WOW.

Butter. Many fruit. AMAZE.

Such linger. Very taste. More flower. Many drool. Wow.

Wow. Such steeping. Wow.

Okay, Doge, that’s enough from you, buddy. Many thanks for your input. We’re on the third steeping now and both very impressed by just how creamy, rich and vibrant this tea’s flavor is. It has such a burst of floral, fruity, and nature tones in it. It’s like walking through the mountains with wildflowers in full bloom while eating a bowl full of fresh passion fruit and cream. The leaves have unfolded so beautifully.

This is such a buttery tea, in both flavor and texture. The floral taste really lingers a very long time in your mouth after sipping, and the tea texture is very wet and mouth-filling. I’m reminded of osmanthus flowers with a bit of the peachy-floral taste they have. It’s a fine example of spring tea.

Oh, he wants to type something again. I’ll let him wrap it up.

Such tea. Many rate. Doge excite.
Follow ur dreams. WOW.

This sounds amazing!

Lion

It really was! I have to say, I wrote that review at like 4 in the morning and my flavor vocabulary was lacking. I kept thinking “this fruit flavor isn’t peach… it’s so familiar, but what is it?” and I couldn’t think of it. But then this morning it came to me as I thought about it more. It tastes like passion fruit! I’m going to edit my review now to reflect that. Definitely more accurate.

Another winner from Taiwan Tea Crafts! A remarkably fresh green oolong bursting with the taste of crisp florals and a sweet creamy body.

I brewed this for 2 minutes using near boiling water after rinsing the tea leaves. Unfortunately it doesn’t hold up well to additional steepings.
