Fanbaoshan Organic "Pacific Breeze" Bug Bitten Oolong Tea - Spring 2020Taiwan Sourcing
"Pacific Nectar" from 2019 was an impressive tea to say the least. If one ever want to know what bug bitten flavor and character is, that "Pacific Nectar" was the only tea to go for. That being said, the terroir of this plantation was stole away by the little grasshoppers last year, so we could not really tell the original character of this plantation from "Pacific Nectar."
Grown at Fanbaoshan as well which is a mountain that could only be reached from Nanou, a small fishing town located at the northeast part of Taiwan. This tea was processed on the same day with "Pacific Buddha," and we finally had a pretty decent weather condition this spring, so the processing was way more pleasant than the ordeal of year 2019.
And here we go, a Qing Xin varietal with such unique terroir that will definitely linger in your mind for a long while thanks to its "salty caramel" like flavor and that special fruit and nut notes from our unique processing. The bug bitten-ness might not be as strong as the "Pacific Nectar," however it is certainly you will feel the ocean of Taiwan vividly this time as we tried this tea here in Formosa from this "Pacific Breeze" we proudly made this year.
