It is difficult to source Mr. Hsieh’s tea. Customarily, his harvest is spoken for well in advance. This year, our team was on site in Hualien to purchase a small lot. He calls his autumn harvests “smoother, with a sweeter taste” and Hsieh is known for his generous solar witherings in production. The combined difficulties of small acreage, irregular bug bite, and an increasingly unpredictable typhoon season make for a dauntingly low yield. The Da Ye (oolong) cultivar crossed the Strait in the 19th century and TRES has since encouraged its uptake to produce bug-bitten black teas in the region, playing uniquely to Hualien's tropical latitude. Notes of pumpkin bread, baking spice and maple syrup.
