Oxidation: 10-15%
Origins: Wen Shan District, Taipei County
Country: Taiwan
Baking Level: None
Elevation: 600 Meters
Harvest: Spring 2015

This award winning tea has large leaves that gives aromas of buttered greens and a nutty roast character with nice floral tones.
 
Initial Steeps:
Roast tones have backed off a little bit, while the floral tone gets accented by a mild sweet fruit note. Medium body to the brew, with a delicate floral profile. The brew is surprisingly coating. Very satisfying.

Later Steeps:
Nice big leaves have fully opened. The nutty roast character is really nice, and doesn’t impede the sweet floral character underneath. The brew is nutty with a mineral flavor, and a masculine cologne-like aroma that is quite beautiful. This sits nicely right between a Wu Yi Rock Oolong (Yancha) and a roasted Tie Guan Yin.  Pretty awesome light roasted Yancha-like Taiwanese oolong. Nutty roast character as expected from Taiwan but with the more burly perfume of Wu Yi Yancha. This is a great example of how a tea can be well balanced between roast and underlying character.
