 #20 Cultivar Oolong


Our spring restock of this oolong is a great expression of this newer tea cultivar's uniqueness. A notoriously hard to grow tea plant, the #20 cultivar is known for its rich, sweet florals and buttery mouthfeel. Originally designed for Baozhong, this tea is now being widely planted throughout Taiwan. This spring pick is a strong and delicate example of the unique character of the #20 cultivar, once described as 'like baking bread in a meadow'. Whether the tea will taste quite like that is a little subjective but we are sure it won't disappoint! A favorite for many, this tea's recognizable taste is a great one for those that are new to high quality oolongs as the taste points are easy to pull out and the 'creamy' nature of the tea is undeniable.

A really good Light Oolong

This tea compares well to some good high-mountains Oolongs I have!
Even though it is a new cultivar it isn't a big change in direction, unlike the Ruby 18 (which is outlandish).
Highly Recommended !

a special, special tea

A very distinct floral oolong with a creamy sweetness that supports it. A unique oolong for sure. Give it a try!
--Note: Make the most out of the brews! The young leaves don't go forever haha.
......I assure you, the tea is well worth it.

A Delightful Green Oolong

Dry leaf smells highly sweet and short infusions brewed in the gongfu style yield a nice translucent green changing to a more yellow green as the steeps go on. The texture is like a nice thin milk and the flavor yields a really good floral sweetness. An absolute delight!
