石門野放水仙 Shimen Ye Fang (Wild) Shui Xian Oolong
Shui Xian/Shimen, Taiwan, Spring 2018 (elevation: 1,300ft)
From the dry leaves, you can smell hints of fruits, roasted nuts, and flowers. You won’t get bored by this wide spectrum of scents. In each sip, flavors like peach, honey, Mi Xiang, orchids, and fruits are refreshingly harmonized with a little bit of sweetness and a great finish. You will sense a very vivid floral bouquet aftertaste.
The production process is really old school. No machinery is used; the entire process is done by hand. As a result, they have been able to produce exceptionally great teas that can be rarely found these days.
Store in a shady and less humid place.
