From Tea & Sympathy

The Four Seasons oolong is also called ‘Forever Spring’, as the plant said to produce Spring teas all year round.

This is the tea that is drunk day-to-day in offices, shops and homes around Taiwan. It’s a great tea with which to begin your love affair with oolongs!

It produces a clear and pale golden liquor, and has a light, sweet flavor that includes the characteristic aromatic notes and buttery mouthfeel of the teas from this part of the World. A true Taiwanese classic.

Origin: Nantou, Taiwan (Spring 2013)

Preparation advice:
Quantity: 6g per 200ml water (1 tsp per cup)
Steeping time: 2.5 – 3 mins
Water: 90°C

If I had to choose just one favorite tea variety to accompany me on my desert island, ‘Green’ Oolongs would have to be my choice. They are the tea I always return to and therefore finding a good value ‘staple’ for the pantry is a life’s work. When it comes to value for money, this is the best I’ve found in some time.

Nose: Sugarcane and cut grass. Medium intensity nose. Building frangipani notes. Second steeping is still fragrant with big floral notes, however lacks some of the complexity of the first steeping. Third is slightly more muted again, but still pleasant.

Palate: Quite fresh, but with a sweet, slightly buttery aftertaste. Subtle. Some floral notes with light peach and sugarcane. Frangipani notes build as tea cools. Taste is more developed and complex on second steeping. Floral notes and nutty, buttery goodness are there in abundance. Faintest hint of grass. Lasting sweetness.

Overall: Cheap and delicious! This tea has the flavour and complexity of teas four times the price. My new go-to daily tea!

Price: AUD$6.70/40g
