From Taiwan Tea Crafts

We’ve introduced the teas from this garden with a winter offering 2 years ago and have proudly seen the popularity of it grow from season to season. We know many of you are waiting for this Lot 468. We are now assured that none will be disappointed! The clean crisp feel of this tea is still present with the mellowness and balance one can expect from a winter 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’m surprised Shibi tea has managed to fly under the radar for so long. IMO, this is one of the most underrated Taiwanese oolongs out there. It encompasses the flavor characteristics of some of the best high mountain teas.

The scent of the wet tea leaves is floral with subtle notes of coconut and tropical fruit. The first couple of infusions are quite light and merely tease your tongue with hints of flavor. Around the 3rd/4th steeps is where the tea really begins to show its stuff. A creamy body rich with flowery nectar, stonefruits, apple, and a hint of coconut in the finish.

I tried this alongside the spring harvest, and enjoyed the fuller, more luscious flavor of the winter crop. In fact, I’m finding myself preferring the winter harvest for Taiwanese tea in general for the clean and smooth taste.
