Dayuling Wulong: Spring 2017 Special Acquisition thumbnail
 
Dayuling Wulong: Spring 2017 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. Available on a special order basis, order by 8/25 to guarantee 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 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: Spring 2017 Special Acquisition thumbnail
 
Lishan Wulong: Spring 2017 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. In contrast with the Dayuling tea from the same season, this one is all about the the front flavors and the interplay of floral and fruit elements. That initial taste experience is punctuated by a very smooth and mild finish.

Dayuling Wulong: Spring 2015 Special Acquisition
Excellent in color, aroma, and flavor, this batch epitomizes fine tea. A brightness up front (typical of spring tea) gives way to an expansive finish. Having grown slowly at high elevation (2800 meters), these leaves have a lot of flavor that comes out gradually over many infusions. Limited availability

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.

Alishan Wulong: Winter 2014 Premium
Careful charcoal baking has given this batch excellent aromatic balance. The light, mildly dry flavor and creamy texture make this tea a great example of what high-elevation winter tea can be. Missed out on the winter 2014 Dayu Ling? Try this one.

Traditional Wulong: Special Acquisition
This interesting tea, a heavily oxidized and baked “traditional” wulong is made in the style of 50 years ago: red in the cup, a touch of honey sweetness, and a clear dry finish. It’s very refined, a little taste of tea history. Special order item, allow approximately two weeks for delivery.

Premium Spring 2014 Alishan Wulong
Charcoal-baked, but light and sweet with very little dryness--a contrast with the charcoal-baked Alishan teas from earlier seasons. Very similar in style to the winter 2014 batch, but a little brighter and greener in flavor, characteristics typical of spring tea.
