Yimu Oolong – 50g Postcard

£14.95

A  rolled green oolong from Ming Jian, a well known tea town in Nantou County. It comes from Mr. and Mrs. Hsieh’s tiny 1 acre tea farm giving the tea its name (Yi Mu roughly means ‘one acre’ in Mandarin).

This is a lovely example of an everyday, lightly oxidised Si Ji Chun (Four Seasons) oolong. Its light, floral aroma and vanilla sweetness make this a ideal place to start for people new to oolong, especially for those who enjoy the delicate flavour of green tea but can find it too grassy or vegetal.

Brew with boiled water that has been allowed to cool for several minutes and a teaspoon per cup. It can be brewed for several infusions.

Mr Hsieh is a second generation tea maker whose family have been growing and processing tea for over 50 years. Mr Hsieh and his wife produce their teas naturally without pesticides and are certified by the Japanese environmental body MOA, using traditional methods of aiding tea growth such as growing grass together with the tea plants to keep in heat and moisture and removing insects by hand.

We named the 4 teas they make for us “Yimu” or “One Acre” as their farm is just an acre in size. On this tiny farm, they intercrop their tea field with ginger which they sell at their local organic market.
