Product Description

From Doi Mae Salong, North Thailand, this Doi Mae Salong (DMS) Oolong Si Ji Chun Four Seasons Tea is handpicked from a special, relatively "modern" tea plant species that was developed in the 1980s in Taiwan's Alishan mountain region and imported in North Thailand first in 1994. The Four Seasons hybrid is particularly characterized by two features:

  1. The Four Seasons plant owes its name to the fact that it produces virtually four "spring" harvests in a year, where other tea plants will show after the spring harvest (usually considered as the year's best harvest) a gradual decline in quality.
  2. The Four-Seasons plant is relatively altitude-indifferent, i.e., unlike most tea plant species it produces the same high quality tea leaves in lower altitudes as it does in higher ones.
In North Thailand, the plant is found - especially in the mountain region of Doi Mae Salong, where this tea is still exclusively handpicked - at altitudes of 1200 to 1800 meters and a seasonal change of a rainy, a hot and dry and a cool period in a 4-months rhythm optimal climate and geographic conditions, which are very similar to these in the tea plant's region of origin.
 
In the nomenclature of this tea, DMS means the cultivation region, Doi Mae Salong, and Si Ji Chun are the Chinese words for Four Seasons. Tastewise, this only very lightly fermented tea with a fermentation degree of 10% or below offers the best of two worlds: the fresh and tart taste of a beautiful Green Tea combined with typical earthy and nutty Oolong note. Intensive, rich scent in the first infusion, already telling quite a  good bit of the taste experience to expect.

For the best taste results, we recommend using approximately 3-5 grams of the Oolong tea with 300ml water, an infusion temperature of 80-85°C, and an infusion period of 1-3 minutes. The aroma and taste profile are sustained without loss for at least 4-5 infusions.
