From Taiwan Tea Crafts

Many times we get asked what is our favorite high-mountain tea. To be fair, we like them all, but if we were to name one that we keep going back to for a rewarding experience, this one will be on the top of the list. Consistency is definitely a sign of quality, both in the growing practices as well as the craftsmanship behind the transformation of the leaf into tea. Our Shibi collaborator has done it again with this superb Lot 874. This is our seventh winter offering from this producer, and probably his best to date. 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 long and smooth finish. The nice thick leaves farmed responsibly are very generous and will give many satisfying infusions of joy in the cup. This tea complies to EU standards in residual pesticide content – one of the strictest norm in the world, presently. You simply can’t go wrong with this tea!

This was the first tea I chose to drink in 2020. Shibi has been a perennial favorite of mine over the years and this latest harvest was a reminder as to why. It’s rich, complex, and has a wonderful floral-fruity flavor. The tea starts off buttery and fresh with aromas of pear, coconut cream, and daffodils. The flowers arrive in waves, starting with peonies, wildflowers, lillies, and hyacinth. This is interspersed with hints of tropical fruit and a little vanilla. Thick in the mouth with a pleasant lingering aftertaste. An exquisite high mountain tea and one of the best terroirs I’ve ever tasted.
