Si Ji Chun whose literal translation means "Four Seasons Springtime" has by far the most orchid-like quality of flavour and aroma of all Taiwanese oolongs. Only the Chinese Tie Guan Yin has more of it.
The aroma of the dry tea is strong and deep, the infusion smells wonderful, very distinctive but clean and delicate. Most Taiwanese island oolongs tend to have a creamy milkiness and fruity richness, but this oolong is more reminiscent of highland oolongs from the mainland, with notes of berries, raspberries, lemons, lime, honey and mountain flowers and of course orchids.
Si ji Chun has an excellent refreshing and relaxing effect that will lift your mood. It can take many infusions and leaves a very long and clean aftertaste.
Genuine Si Ji Chun always has a strong scent, so strong that it fills the whole room.
