Winter Crisp Oolong 

We are happy to introduce a tea from Wu Jie, a very new terroir just outside of Puli, Taiwan. This winter tea is sweet, crisp and buttery and has all the best aspects of  Taiwanese high mountain oolongs without the high price tag!

Wu Jie is located between the Pear Mountain and Shanlinxi growing areas this tea really has the best of those terroirs. The rich, deep, thick minerality of Shanlinxi is mixed with the higher fruity notes and lingering aftertaste of Pear Mountain to make this a great tea for those that love high mountain oolongs!

Crisp and floral

On the first infusion I get a light crisp Granny Smith apple aftertaste but not tart. On the second infusion it becomes slightly more dense and has
more vegetal/floral notes. I get a floral brightness on my pallet. I get notes of lilies and jasmine. The floral aroma and tastes lingers on your senses. It’s really quite a lovely experience. Make sure not to over steep these leaves or you will get bitterness.

Crisp and refreshing!

I received a 15g sample in the “Taste of Winter” Teaeducation Subscription Box. Flavors are exactly as described: bright minerality coupled with a buttery sweetness that smells as good as it tastes. I was able to push it to 7 steeps. Another great, affordable discovery from Mountain Stream Teas!
