Cultivar: Qingxin (ruanzhi) Oolong

Harvested by hand : May 17th, 2023

Origin: Fushou Shan (Lishan) Elevation: 2200-2500 m

Process: Light to medium oxidized, rolled by hand and dried Oolong

The Fushou Shan plantation was established during Chiang Ching-Kuo's presidency (Chiang Kai-Shek's son). It's managed by retired generals and has very close ties to the state and the military (during the dictatorship, this was the same thing!). Thanks to this connection, Oolong from Fushou Shan is one of the favorite tea gift that state and army officials can receive. Luckily for private customers, in recent years other farmers have also established tea farms on FuShou Shan and are providing us with teas that can exceed the original in quality!

1. View

The dry leaves have a light green color and a long yellow stem. The brew is a bright yellow gold color with excellent transparency. The open leaves are thick and solid. In most cases, only 2 leaves and 1 bud were harvested, which explains the finesse of the tea.

2. Scents

The dry scents already smell of bright and fine flowers. The brew has high notes of spring flowers, lavender and hints of butter. 

3. Taste

Fresh and sweet, refined and powerful. This Oolong has everything! The aftertaste runs deep and long.

Conclusion: Again, this spring confirms that Fushou Shan produces some of Taiwan's finest Oolongs!
