Alishan Wulong: Winter 2018 Premium
Also a gaoshan (high elevation, 1000 meters and above) tea, this one too has the rich, broad aromas and texture found in the winter 2018 Lishan and Alishan Jinxuan teas. Charcoal baking has enhanced the mid flavors, making this one the driest of the three with a classic big lingering finish.

Alishan Wulong: Spring 2017 Premium
Like three teas in one, this charcoal-baked batch transforms itself from first to final infusion. The initial brew is light and green up front, close to baozhong in style. The flavor builds into the middle infusions and develops a dry finish characteristic of wulong. However, rather than fading away on that note the final pots develop a pleasant sweetness in the finish.

Lishan Wulong: Winter 2018 Special Acquisition thumbnail
 
Lishan Wulong: Winter 2018 Special Acquisition
Grown at high elevation (1700-2500 meters) on Taiwan’s Lishan mountain range, a region famous for producing excellent fruit as well as tea. This season has produced an outstanding tea. In every sip an initial sweet flavor smoothly transitions to a drier finish: an unusual and compelling feature. On top of that the rich aroma and creamy texture typical of high-elevation winter tea are also present. Although this batch is resistant to over-brewing, the interesting sweet/dry balance is best preserved through shorter infusions. Very limited availability.

Dayuling Wulong: Spring 2018 Special Acquisition
This batch is all about the lingering late flavors. Delicate up front, this tea builds in the back of the mouth in a very durable and sophisticated way. It is difficult to categorize this one as either a sweet or dry tea, as there are elements of both on the palate. The qualities of this batch are rare find, hardly typical, but for me they provide a fascinating high-end tea experience. Limited availability.

Alishan Wulong: Winter 2016 Premium
Careful and light charcoal baking has made this batch sublimely refined and smooth. It keeps these characteristics throughout, becoming heavy in neither flavor or finish, much in the style of tea from much higher elevations. Consequently, I did not acquire other wulong teas this season.

Alishan Wulong: Spring 2015 Premium
The fine aromatic balance from charcoal-baking lingers in the aroma cup, and the finish is very even and just a little bit dry. This batch has the classic dry finish of wulong tea without the heaviness sometimes associated with the style.
