Spring Tea Harvest On Lin's Organic Farm

April 08, 2015

Mr. and Mrs. Lin harvested their spring crop of organic oolong tea today! The early morning fog retreated and offered a clear day for the harvest. And today's unusual weather of a mild cold-front coming in brought a natural air-conditioned effect for the processing of the leaves in their home factory. The yield was slightly less than expected due to the unusually dry growing season, but still produced considerably more than the previous inaugural harvest.

We eagerly look forward to tasting the fresh spring batch, and will keep you posted as the leaves are roasted and are ready to share. Here are a few shots of the morning harvest and early afternoon solar withering.

The prominent features of this batch of tea are the growing region, the farming methods, weather conditions on the day of harvest, and the degree of oxidation in the leaves in their processing. These factors offer us a premium quality High Mountain Oolong Tea. 

The brewed tea offers a creamy, soft pine aroma with a smooth, savory/vegetal character that is very satisfying. It has a lingering, thick yet mild floral aftertaste, with a touch of heady spice. It's this integrated composition that we have come to appreciate most about High Mountain Oolongs. When there is sufficient complexity, combined with a thick, smooth constitution that actually shines the most after it has cooled down, it rates high on our Oolong score chart!

Batch #47 of the Eco-Cha Tea Club was procured from our ongoing source of Da Yu Ling High Mountain Oolong. The proprietor of our local tea packaging facility and tea wholesaler has cooperated with this farmer who manages the farms in both Cui Feng and Da Yu Ling for many years. Our friend has consulted in both farm management and tea processing in order to have reliable produce from two of Taiwan's most prestigious place names for High Mountain Oolong Tea.
