Cultivar: Jade (Cui Yu or Tsui Yu) Oolong (翠玉)
Harvested by hand on April 7th, 2016
Origin: Zhushan, Nantou (central Taiwan)
Process: Light oxidized, unroasted Oolong.

Like Jinxuan, this cultivar was developed in Taiwan's Tea Research and Extension Station in the 80s (and known also as Taiwan tea No. 13). It's a 'fragrant' cultivar that is very suitable to start learning about rolled Taiwanese Oolongs. And it's also very suitable as a daily, fresh Oolong, because it's both affordable and easy to brew.

These leaves come from a plantation between Zhushan and Yiguang shan. The terrain is mountainous already and the elevation is around 600-700 meters. This explains why this tea was harvested relatively late and why its dry leaves are quite big.

The taste is light with a zesty feel. The scents are fresh and grassy. It smells like a spring meadow.
