The Si Ji Chun cultivar, traditionally dedicated to oolong production, finds new life in the slopes around the Abe river. Unlike most fibrous late-harvests of Si Ji Chun oolong in Taiwan, these tender first-harvest leaves undergo a very careful hand-rolling to maintain integrity. The Moriuchis, in the spirit of international tea cooperation, hosted a delegation from Taiwan some years ago, who brought these seeds with them. In addition, the husband and wife team produces a rolled Bao Zhong oolong from the Koushun cultivar. Both teas are new craft representations and testament to the beauty of cross-cultural tea dialogue. Four Seasons is light-bodied, sweet and heady with floral notes, bearing an uncanny resemblance to the Taiwanese oolong whose phenotype it shares—a must-taste for a cross-cultural tea enthusiast. Notes of gardenia, milk fruit, and edamame.
