Kanjiao Natural Farming Cui Yu "Aura Emerald" Oolong Tea - Summer 2022Taiwan Sourcing
The advent of "Aura Jade" from last summer was one of our major breakthroughs of 2021. The possibility of summer material was completely revealed from our experiment last year, and with that foundation we are able to create a even better version of "Aura Jade" this year. We felt the name "Aura Jade" will be a bit underestimating of the value of this tea, so we decided to make a new name for this year's tea.
After seeing how effective the processing we performed on "Aura Jade" from last year, Mr. Chen has zero hesitation to "GO Machine!" this season. Machine plucking has been our prioritized harvesting method when it comes to tea. Not only are cost saved on labour, but the time dilation of material arriving at the factory caused by the naturally slow speed of human labour that would often create scheduling problems during withering stage was also solved. As a result, Mr. Chen is now a big fan of machine plucking thanks to our new processing method.
The tea has a subtly "Aura Jade" did not have from last summer. Our withering philosophy has evolved further to the boundary of unexpectedness. We hope this tea will be the transcript of our curiosity in exploring the new world of tea possibility, a realm we probably could not reach this far without all of your companionship. May this "Aura Emerald" be with you and family when needed, and be the cup of your tea.

Right from the first sip this tea really brings vitality and charm to the drinker. It’s bold but not overbearing, feeling so refreshing and balanced. The price is also very good for such a rejuvenating tea that showcases another facet to the gem that is cuiyu, and offers another contribution to the natural farmed tea experience.
