 #20 Cultivar Oolong


This beautiful winter picked 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 sweet florals and buttery mouthfeel. Originally grow for Baozhong, this tea is now being widely planted throughout Taiwan. This winter pick is strong and vegetal in the first steep before opening up to 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 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!
