    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.

    1990's Wenshan Baozhong
    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. Tea flavor reminiscent of citrus peel & cloves. There's a lot of tea here for the money, and after 20 years in storage, no funky aroma or sourness, just clean, warming goodness.

  • Insect-Bitten Imperial Concubine
    $50.00
    100g
    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.

    Ali Shan Tasting Set 2016
    This set includes 50g Ali Shan Oolong + 50g Ali Shan Jin Xuan. The oolong leaves spring open very quickly and are simply beautiful, long stem, bud & two leaves. This tea has been expertly processed with great consistency. The liquor is yellow-green, turning to yellow-orange if over steeped. Fantastic aroma - light, floral and green, the mouthfeel is light and creamy with a subtly sweet finish. Pairs perfectly with quiche! By comparison, the dry, heated leaves of the Jin Xuan give an aroma of sugarcane. When steeped, the wet leaves give off melted butter, vegetal notes & baked bread. Later in the session, sweet potato, and caramel are noticeable. The tea liquor is thick, sweet, and grassy, but not astringent. Absolutely delicious! Try it out for yourself!
