* We don’t like to throw away the first brew (often called "first wash") because all our oolong tea are high quality and clean, we feel like a waste to throw them away.

The name of Four Seasons Spring comes from one Taiwanese cultivar called "Si Ji Chun", which is very strong even in cold climate and can be harvested 6-8 times a year. "Si Ji Chun" tea has good soil and water adaptability and a short dormancy state during the winter. Therefore it has high production in Taiwan.

This tea is machine picked from Nantou county in southern Taiwan. It belongs to the southernmost part of the Bagua Mountain. Due to its unique terrace landform, long-term mountain mist, cool weather and its bright red soil layer,  it’s a perfect natural environment for planting tea leaves.

This Four Seasons Spring oolong is our entry level oolong. Echoing its name, this tea has incredible cape jasmine fragrance and green jujube sweetness that reminds you of the cheerful birds singing from spring. We highly recommend this tea to whoever wants to step into the  Taiwanese oolong wanderland, not only because of its affordable price, but also because it has the charm of oolong tea and the aroma of green tea, suitable for drinking in all seasons.
