As you will read in the notes of all this years teas from Taiwan the Spring was tough and Spring yields at this garden were low.  Autumn was a different story here and with much care Mr Zhang has cultivated beautiful lush leaves that deliver the character we all associate with Jade oolong : floral, sweet & vegetal in a beautiful smooth cup. Another example of how a dedicated organic grower who understands and cares for the land and the specific needs of the cultivar grown + skilled tea maker = fantastic tea : enjoy!
