Features:

 

Gaoshan Jinxuan, also known as milk oolong, the hand-plucked leaves of Alishan Jin Xuan Oolong Tea are grown in the famous Ali Mountains (Alishan) in Taiwan. At the elevation of 1400 meters, the mountainsides are covered with fog or clouds which are ideal for growing Oolong. With better drought tolerance, also higher yield, the price is usually lower than Alishan Oolong.  Jin-Xuan is a special variety of Camellia Sinensis (tea plant) developed through research at the tres.gov.tw. This special variety is known for producing an Oolong with a special fragrance and a very light creaminess naturally. 

 

Sijichun, plucked from Taiwan peculiar Four Seasons Spring tea cultivar, first found in Muzha area, was believed a hybrid of Wuyi cultivar and Qingxin cultivar. Mr. Lee, the tea farmer from Mingjian Nantou, transplanted this cultivar from Muzha to Mingjian, and found it high yield in every season. Therefore, Mr. Lee named the cultivar Sijichun Four Seasons Spring (means prosperous in four seasons). In addition to stringent management of planting, Taiwan fruity oolong tea (Sijichun) was handcrafted to refine into traditional oolong tea. This Four Seasons Spring oolong was strictly selected as a higher grade oolong tea, a nice fruit-like flavor to this, with floral notes and hints of a grassy like flavor, possesses particularly pure and strong fresh flower fragrance plus smooth taste which you, tea lovers, won't miss it out.

 

Brewing tips: 


The water used to steep this tea should be about 85-90 degree Celsius. Use about 3 grams of tea leaves for about every 150 c.c. of water. A steeping time of about 6 minutes is recommended with more or less time depending on the desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the number of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. The tea leaves should uncurl for full flavor. 

 

For the ultimate enjoyment, a traditional Chinese ceramic (pottery) teapot is recommended for loose oolong tea. The teapot should be half filled with leaves and initially steeped for 45 seconds to 1 minute with the steeping time increased by an additional 15 seconds for each successive steeping. The leaves may be brewed for multiple times.
