Taiwan Wuyi


A wuyi oolong varietal from Taiwan. It came from Floating Leaves Tea and was a sample given to me by a kind person who continues to expand my oolong horizons.

The leaves are a dark, rich green with the occasional stem. It smells like berries. I stuffed my little pot and used short infusions.

It tastes like peaches and apricots with a friendly astringency, sweet after taste, and medium mouthfeel. Similar to this dan cong from Tea Spring.

Wanna try something really interesting? Hou De has a tea thats a mix of two different cultivars, Wuyi and Chin Shin. Grown in Taiwan. Very interesting stuff, the tea has distinct aspects of both cultivars. I had reviewed this tea on Hou Des site and described it as being a mad scientist experiment. A.K.A. Frankenstein Oolong. haha

Hi,
I am very happy to know that you like our Taiwan Wuyi. This tea is made from a tea friend of mine in Taiwan. I will pass the comment to my friend.
I am currently working on a Jin Xuan roasted oolong and a high mountain roasted oolong. If you like roasted oolong, let me know. I will send you some samples.
Thank you for liking the tea.

I Love to drink tea, specially green tea. this one can give you a lot of benefits to your health. Tea can prevent cavities, fights cholesterol, eliminates fat, longer life ... and a long list of properties that make this tea a real preventive medicine. so if you don´t drink frequently, is better begins drinking.
