The 2013 spring harvest Imperial Green Oolong was selected from
the famed Fu Shao Shan area, where Taiwan’s most prized and sought-after
Oolongs are now produced. This year’s production fills all our Imperial
requirements for green style Oolongs. The large, hand-rolled leaves in
uniform size and color are shown off brilliantly. And the nice lilac floral
notes that begin from the dried leaves continue into the cup. This harvest’s
fully enveloping texture and viscosity, the silky smooth sweetness and long
lasting aftertaste are essential characteristics for our Imperial Green Oolong
is only one thing missing, which is the excessive vegetal bitterness that is
sometimes displayed by top quality green Oolongs. The lack of over powering
astringency allows us to cup this year’s harvest at a higher strength (5 gms.
per 4 oz. of water), bringing out every one of the desired elements in full
force. Flavorful, elegant, and robust, this tea surely won’t disappoint.
Unfortunately, 5 lbs. of this great Oolong have already been reserved for those
on our waiting list. Please do not allow yourselves to miss experiencing this
