Winter batch of our most popular high mountain oolong from Taiwan. Low oxidation and gentle roasting. This tea growing near Zhangshu Hu lake is highly flowery with nice oily texture combined with amazing grassy freshness. When tasting this tea you will find orchid, citrusy aromas and sweet notes od almonds and butter. Liqour is sweet and balanced. Bitterness apprearing in further infustions makes this tea even more interesting!

Winter batch is less astringent than spring one. Very smooth.
