From teamasters

The 2015 season is particularly dry. While new tea plantations in the mountains all use water sprinklers, this lack of rain means the plants only received the minimum amount of water. This has reduced yields, but also increased the concentration of the tea. This year’s Jinxuan Oolong is therefore particularly rich and concentrated. Harvested on a sunny day, the brew has a very good clarity. The flowery, grassy and butter scents are very persistent. The taste is powerful and sweet. We can feel the freshness of spring and the power of Alishan’s High Mountain.

This is an excellent tea to start experiencing the amazing freshness and energy of one of Taiwan’s famous tea mountain.

I usually don’t buy lightly oxidized oolongs, because they tend to end up sitting around for way too long. I guess it just falls outside my preferences, generally speaking. But when I finally got around to trying this one, it did not disappoint; absolutely delicious, rich, sweet, floral, grassy and the longevity is excellent.

After a quick rinse the leaf aroma was amazing. Tea stayed thick and buttery throughout the session, I didn’t count the steeps but it was quite a few. I’ve had much more expensive teas that perform a lot worse for my taste. As far as lightly oxidized oolongs go, this is pretty much as good a buy as I could hope to make

Now discounted at ~$0.20/g it is the cheapest of Stephane’s 2015 oolongs. The price is very reasonable for the quality in my book, and at this point I regret not ordering one of his more expensive 2015 oolongs for comparison.
