Si Ji Chuen (4 Seasons Oolong) was named for its ability to yield consistent tea crops all year round. It is also pretty tasty. If the tea is made well, a nice vegetal upfront, floral mid mouth and a lingering sweet subtle spice in the aftertaste greet those who choose this brew. Another nice benefit of this tea is that it is pretty cheap. While it is no classic high-mountain oolong, this lightly oxidized batch fully expresses the best parts of this cultivar. And at this price, it is a great daily drinker!
