Harvested: by hand on April 30th, 2019
Origin: Shan Lin Xi (1300 m)
Process: Lightly oxidized, rolled Oolong, dried
1. The view
The dry leaves are bright and dark green. The brew has a very good golden transparency. The open leaves are large and tender.
2. The scents
The dry leaves have fresh flowers and high notes. The brew has these flowery scents and raw peaches. The open leaves smell of a bamboo forest.
3. The taste
The taste is mellow, pure and zesty. It coats the palate, triggers salivation and prolongs the aftertaste with a pleasant sweet and lightly astringent taste.
Conclusion: Theses Oolong leaves come from a very well managed tea garden in Shan Lin Xi. It's a father and son affair, as is often the case around Lugu. It's the first time I've selected my Oolong from this farmer, but it won't be the last!
