Four Seasons of Spring is named because it produces four flushes (or harvests) each year that have a flavor and quality of that of a spring flush. This varietal was cultivated in Taiwan from a strain of TieGuanYin (Iron Goddess of Mercy), in the 1980s. This delightful oolong varietal has been cultivated for its sweet, floral flavors and expertly processed by hand. It is light yet buttery with lingering flowery finish of morning gardenias and warm milk. Good for 2-4 infusions.
Other names: Si Ji Chun, 四季春
Origin: Nantou, Taiwan
Four Seasons of Spring is a good tea for beginning brewers. This tea is light, sweet and extremely fragrant. The taste of gardenias clings to the upper palate and dazzles the senses.
