It's Spring Again?! - Namaxia "Four Seasons Spring" Si Ji Chun Oolong Tea

It feels like spring again thanks to this fabulous hand-picked Si Ji Chun from Namaxia, Taiwan. I assume tea trees' favorite season is spring. They are the most prolific in the spring. This is when new leaves come out with full of vitality after the winter rest period. However, for Si Ji Chun, every season is spring as the name implies. Fragrant young leaves come out throughout the year. Si Ji Chun has colorful bouquet scents like magnolia, gardenia, and jasmine flowers. Since its taste and flavor is vivid and rich, many people including tea beginners are in love with...


Oriental Beauty Like We Have Never Seen - High Mountain Bai Hao

Oriental Beauty Like We Have Never Seen - High Mountain Bai Hao

This is Mr. Gao's High Mountain Bai Hao (Oriental Beauty). His Bai Hao tea garden is located at an elevation of around 1,600 m (5,250 ft).

The trees in the garden are only for Oriental Beauty, and are picked only once a year. He then lets the trees rest for the remainder of the year. Tea trees, like people, could get exhausted if they are overworked. Mr. Gao thinks of his trees as people, so he does not overburden them.

In other words, if a Bao Zhong garden produces 10kg of tea, an Oriental Beauty garden of the same size produces only 1-2kg of tea. This leads to Oriental Beauty’s high cost. The most distinct feature of Oriental Beauty is its unique honey scent (Mi Xiang). Oriental Beauty owes this scent to a small insect called Jacobiasca formosana, which...

Hunting for High Mountain Black Tea Grown in the Perfect Environment

The Qi Lai Shan High Mountain Black Tea was highly approved by all the tasters at Daurim. This premium black tea is made of Qing Xin trees from Mr. Gao’s tea garden on Qi Lai Shan, which is a rising-star tea region in Taiwan near Dayuling, Hehuanshan. The garden’s elevation is about 5,600 ft high, which is rather high for black teas. Since the garden’s territory was recently developed, the trees in it are grown from the new and vibrant energy of the soil. All the conditions of the garden were great; the gap between the daily high and low...
