Terroir

Shimen, Taiwan, Spring 2017 (Elevation: 1,500m)

Tasting Notes

Smokey, brown rice, lemon, peach, floral, umami

Tea Story

Shimen used to be one of the major tea producing regions during the Japanese colonial period. However, these days the tea from Shimen is extremely difficult to find due to limited production in the region.

Process

The tea is roasted after the first part of the process, which is similar to that of Qing Xiang oolong. However, it releases very little burnt scent from roasting, which makes it easily approachable.

Storage

You can drink the tea as soon as you receive the package or you can age it for a couple of years for an even softer flavor.

Recommended Brewing Instructions

• 120ml Gaiwan
• 5g leaves
• 194-212°F (90-100°C)
• 20+ sec
• can be steeped 5-6 times

Jong Lim's Comment

It contains its unique fresh scent and dense flavors at the same time. Compared to the WInter version of the tea, it tastes rather sharp and sophisticated.
