About Four Seasons Oolong

Four seasons oolong, or in Chinese, Si Ji Chun(四季春) is a variety of Taiwanese oolong produced from a particular cultivar of tea, usually grown in the Nantou region, but also grown in Chiayi. The name literally translates as four seasons spring or four seasons springtime, but tea companies rarely include this full translation.

Four seasons oolong is typically produced in the style of traditional greener oolongs, with low oxidation (around 20%) and a light but noticeable roast. The aroma is often described as floral, fruity, and sometimes earthy. Si Ji Chun often tends to be relatively inexpensive among greener high-grown Taiwanese oolongs.

I wanted to try this tea because De Theefabriek's other Vietnamese teas have been absolutely amazing.

The dry tea doesn't have a very strong aroma, but it's very sweet and almost reminds of some candy mix.

I wrote this review last year, and somehow forgot to post it!

I tried this tea at the Philadelphia Coffee and Tea Festival, and enjoyed it. I also took a sample, which I've since brewed a number of times.

Dry leaf smells a lot like a lightly-roasted traditional oolong, smelling pretty woody. Upon brewing, has a...

A lovely, smooth oolong. I brought the water to 185 °F and steeped it for a few minutes. It has a hint of herbaceousness, almost floweriness, and overall tastes like a very solid, everyday tea. I wonder how it would do if left to steep longer, as I like my teas strong. I experienced no bitterness or anything unpleasan...

The aroma of this oolong is very mild, not really vegetal but more like fresh vegetation growing on a spring day. It is also floral and a touch like fresh hay. Once brewed the aroma is much stronger and more floral, especially lilacs.

The tea is very mild, a touch vegetal with a bit of green beans and pine needles....
