FOUR SEASONS OOLONG JASMINE
Four Seasons Oolong is a relatively new varietal developed during the 1980s in the Nantou region of Taiwan. It is lightly oxidized and very floral with a hint of jasmine.
Four Seasons Oolong tea was founded accidentally by a tea farmer in the Mu Zha area in Taipei, almost like a tea-growing wild in his garden. Interesting to note that one characteristic of this tea is its somewhat strong vigor and wildness. This farmer happened to notice that some of his tea plants were growing exceptionally fast while his other regular tea plants were not even beginning to bud. So he nurtured & planted a field of this tea and discovered he could get up to 7 or 8 harvests per year. It could even be cropped in early or late winter. Thus the name Four Seasons Oolong.
