This one is a creeper that is a keeper. Deceptively rich, this tea has notes of gardenia and honey, with hints of buttered greens and a long lasting finish.
Origin: Nantou, Taiwan
Tea Master: Ai Fang
Cultivar: Si Ji Chun
Brewing Suggestions: This tea is best enjoyed when drank in a gongfu style, using preferably a porcelain gaiwan. Some semi porous pots work well with lightly oxidized oolong, but not all. Teapot brewing instructions are also available below.
Fill your vessel up from a third to half the way (1g of tea per 1 oz). Using water fresh off the boil, steep first for 30 seconds. On the second steep, shorten the steep to 20-25 seconds. Then increase 5-10 seconds on each following steep.
We recommend using spring or filtered water. Heat to 195F/90C. Use 2.5g / 1.5 tsp of tea for 12 oz of water. Steep 4-6 minutes.
