Spring is my favorite season because there is an exciting new harvest to explore. Join me as I dive into some of the 2019 offerings from Seven Cups.
Enchanting Fragrance from Mei Mei Fine Teas was suprisingly fruity for a Wuyi oolong. I was reminded of perfectly ripe pomegranate.
Lao Ma E' Sheng from Jalam Teas was vegetal with all of the bitterness that this region is known for along with a nice returning sweetness.
Ma Wei Moonlight White from Hugo Tea was soft and floral with a hint of brown sugar sweetness. Think wildflowers rather than hothouse orchid.
Songyi Tea Shanlinshi was grown on Longfeng Gorge in Nantuo. The taste was floral with a prominent note of toasted sesame seed. Yum!
8 Immortals was floral with a grounded quality that I really enjoyed. This tea is a must try for those who are new to Phoenix oolongs.
