  • Lishan 2016

    Lishan 2016
    Place the dry leaves in a pre-warmed gaiwan, and a sweet aroma of cut grass and steamed reed leaves wafts from the tea. The tea is lightly roasted, and lightly oxidised, with a decent caffeine kick. It's a refreshing, wake up tea! The greenish yellow soup gives fresh vegetal flavors of sweet grass, bamboo & rock sugar. Steep it longer for heavier body, more vegetable acids, and stewy character. It finishes with a lingering flicker of sweetness. Delicious!

    Insect-Bitten Imperial Concubine
    A spectacular tea with an unusual name to match - 蜒咬贵妃茶 Insect-Bitten Imperial Concubine! This highly oxidised, dark roasted, Taiwanese oolong has a heady aroma of honey orchid, tree resin & dark blackberries. We recommend fast infusions as it produces a dark amber liquor with thick mouthfeel very quickly. This tea has surprising endurance, it keeps giving rewarding, dense volumes of honey, citrus oil, old wood, and charcoal flavors - tease them out by playing with steep times. Push it hard and you get bitter tannic dancong-like flavors, with dried prune and sour grapefruit aftertaste. The aroma from the gaiwan lid shifts to baked apple pie, moist cake, toasted raisin bread with melted butter. What a stunner - a clear favourite from our 2016 Taiwan sourcing trip.

    Aged Taiwan oolong that's been gently re-roasted to awaken it's flavor & aroma - and what a delight it is! Arresting bouquet of fragrant plum wine & dried seaweed, aged wood, and dark chocolate.

    Beitou Zhilan Xiang
    碑头芝兰香 Bēitóu zhīlán xiāng - for lovers of elegant, subtle fenghuang dancong. Absolutely love the peach aroma on the dry leaf. The tea has a combination of floral and milky aromatics with some spearmint, the mouthfeel is very thick, smooth and creamy. Super long lasting fragrance - orchid flowers linger in the mouth, with good huigan. Not tannic or bitter at all even after over-steeping. Just fantastic!

    Roaring Tiger Rougui
    Our 2015 Rougui 肉桂 is grown at Hu Xiao Yan 虎啸岩 or "Roaring Tiger Cliff" - a famous tea garden within the Wuyi protected reserve. Traditionally roasted to a medium high level. Pre-warm your gaiwan and the dry leaves will release a cocoa aroma with sweet brown sugar, charcoal roasted chestnut and a lychee topnote. This tea is full bodied, and active, leaving a long lasting impression in the mouth. Subtle aroma from the soup, but what's left in the empty cup is nougat naixiang. Toasted grains at back of tongue, relatively dry, has a lot of tannin, followed by a sweet refrain. Experienced tea drinkers who don't like vulgar, high aroma, and seek yanyun / cliff spirit will love this tea. Minerally rich, smooth overall mouthfeel and physiological chaqi. Things that are harder to put your finger on but can be felt in degrees.

    Fu Shou Shan 2014 Winter
    Fu Shou Shan is a highly sought after variety of high mountain Taiwanese oolong, grown at 2,600m elevation at a Government owned farm in the Lishan mountain range. Fu Shou Shan is known for being highly variable, with different harvest days producing different tastes & quality. Tea geeks in Taiwan compare Fu Shou Shan to rolling a dice! Our 2015 Spring selection was processed by a single tea maker and is a stand out example of what can be achieved with this terroir. When placed in a hot gaiwan, the dried leaves release a strong floral aroma with molasses and ripe fruits. Add water, and you get deep fried vegetables & crème brûlée from the leaves, with a candy sweet top note from the gaiwan lid. The tea itself is smooth, creamy and pleasantly sweet, with roasted notes coming through on the 2nd and 3rd infusions. We only have a tiny quantity of this excellent tea, get in quick before it runs out.

    Bai Ji Guan 2014
    An exceptional, top shelf, zhengyan Bai Ji Guan 白鸡冠 (White Cockscomb), grown within the Wuyi protected reserve. Made in the traditional method, from actual Bai Ji Guan varietal, it is yellowish, not green like many fake Bai Ji Guan. Despite being one of the four famous yancha varietals it's relatively rare to come across good Bai Ji Guan, as it hasn't been planted widely, and being quite different from other yancha styles, not everyone has the skills to get it right. From the same master as our flagship Da Hong Pao Reserve, our Bai Ji Guan is lightly roasted, with a bright yellow liquor, very fragrant aroma, floral tinged with honey, dried apricots, and Chinese medicine. Aged since 2014, it's medicinal, detoxifying properties are enhanced. The taste profile is reminiscent of aged white tea, and old dry wood.
