Not only is it very rare to find “organic” Lishan teas, it is also true for all high-mountain terroirs and it is very refreshing to find highly principled growers like Mr. Wen that seeks to produce the best high-mountain tea experience possible as nature intended, which is not necessarily as the dominant agro-chemical industry proposes. This spring 2023 Lot 1232 carries in the tradition of what this garden has offered us nearly every season in the last 10 years we’ve been supporting their efforts, through thick and thin. With the news of the much drier winter and early spring weather, we were relieved Mr. Chen’s garden was spared and blessed with some rain provided by the micro-climate of Cui Fong on the western face of the Hehuanshan range. Made from a small garden of slow-grown Qing Xin leaves, this tea delivers all the subtle nuances of alpine meadow freshness, fragrant bouquets of exotic flowers and a thick buttery smoothness that enthralls the palate. When we say subtle, we don’t mean weak! We mean subtle as in intricate and complex but in a more subdued way that titilates the senses in many sensory riddles. This is not an “in your face” high nitrogen-boosted tea. We believe that when you allow this tea the attention and space it deserves, it will unveil its true beauty. There’s nothing like letting nature balance the the tone of what this tea delivers in a most harmonious and generous way. This tea also matures magnificently and will improve if kept sealed for at least one full season, making the spring 2022 Lot 1141 very appealing right now! Like everywhere else in Taiwan, this spring’s weather has greatly impacted yields with Lishan tea gardens reporting up to 50% less leaves to pick than expected. This directly impacted our procurement with much less tea to offer than previous seasons. Don’t delay in ordering your requirements!
