Zhushan Cui Yu "Jade" Oolong Tea
Cui Yu (TTES No.13)/Zhushan, Taiwan, Spring 2018 (Elevation: 1,300ft)
Jasmine and floral bouquets
Cui Yu is a very special cultivar because it releases more jasmine fragrance than any other tea cultivars. Even tea beginners can easily catch its jasmine scent.
It also releases a variety of other floral scents, thanks to a little bit of oxidation. If you are looking for a floral extravaganza, this tea is perfect. Its scents are very vivid, but not overwhelming because they are naturally from the cultivar. This tea is a lot smoother and more pleasing than blended or flavored teas.
Store in a shady and less humid place.
