Grown at relatively low elevations (this lot being grown at 500 meters above sea level), the Sijichun varietal was developed to produce the floral character of Spring all year round.
Sijichun, which translates to Four Seasons of Spring, produces four distinct flushes (harvestable growths) throughout the year, as opposed to the two flushes that are typically produced. This lot was made using material from the 2017 winter harvest and is deeply enjoyable and approachable. An excellent tea for those new to the genre of lightly oxidized, Taiwanese rolled oolongs.
