A great everyday oolong with a light body giving way to an abundance of sweetness and a delightfully creamy texture, complimented by a subtle floral liquor with notes of jasmine and lychee.
This classic Taiwanese varietal also known as SiJiChun was originally discovered growing in the wild. However, many believe it to be a cross between the popular WuYi and QingXing cultivars. This particular version is machine picked, rolled and oxidized 10-15%
Tasting notes: jasmine, lychee, floral
Place 2.5g of tea in a cup that can hold a bit more than 100ml of water.
Bring water to 90°c and pour 100ml into your cup.
Let it steep for 2.5 minutes.
Feel free to play around with your tea. See how the used leaves smell after you brewed your tea and compare it to how the tea tastes. Change the brewing temperature as well and taste how that affects the flavour of the tea.
If you are serious about tea or would like to be, we recommend investing in a little scale that is able to measure 0.1g and a fancy water boiler with temperature control.
Shelf life for your tea: Tea doesn’t really expire, it ages and as it does it hits a peak at a certain point. Some varieties at Companion Tea are intentionally aged. They always try to sell everything while tasting best.
