A daily favourite oolong in Taiwan with a strong floral character
“Nothing is so beautiful as spring.” As though inspired by Hopkins' ode, this silky smooth oolong boasts an exuberant bouquet of spring flavors. Yielding an impressive four to six harvests a year, it's no wonder this cultivar is known as Si Ji Chun, or “four seasons of spring.”

I had quite high hopes for this tea when I opened it; the aroma is floral and strong, the leaves are tightly curled and a nice dark green. But don't let that fool you.
About a third of the volume is twigs, often as long as the leaves themselves. The taste is okay, but nothing to wright home about. You could find better quality for the same price elsewhere, or even spend a bit more on a high grade oolong.
