Cultivar: TTES No 22 Qin Yu (A new cultivar with Qingxin Oolong as male parent and Jinxuan as female parent).

Harvested by hand: April 5th, 2023

Origin: A 4 years young plantation in San Hsia, North Taiwan.

Process: Lightly oxidized striped leaves, light roasting, with some stems.

1. View

The dry leaves have a fresh dark green color. The brew has a concentrated, bright yellow hue that points to a higher oxidation level than what we can see on the open leaves. The reason is that the leaves have a very strong concentration of flavors.

2. Scents

The dry leaves have scents of veggies, like a green tea, and of caramel. The brew is an explosion of fragrant flowers. There's yulan, yelai xiang and many others. The most powerful flower fragrances emanate from the cup. And this scent is exactly the heavy natural scent that floats in the air of this tea garden in late March on a warm and sunny day.

3. Taste

The taste is pure and clean, bright and sweet. Despite the long test brew, the tea becomes just barely astringent and not bitter. This is what the creators of this new cultivar had in mind when they crossed Qingxin and Jinxuan: a tea that is easy to brew.

Conclusion: This Baozhong combines the sweet and floral qualities of the Qingxin and of Jinxuan cultivars. And it comes from a new and organic plantation, which increases the purity and power of these leaves.
