Sweet Cream Alishan High Mountain 2023 Spring
We were lucky to acquire this tea. The dry weather this Spring meant a much lower yield for the farmer, but an intensely thick and flavorful broth for the tea. It's got an almost salty taste with clear mango notes in the aroma. Tea broth is richly concentrated, all the life energy for growing was focused on a small number of leaves. Extremely creamy with sweet notes.
When we drink this tea we are filled with gratitude for Mr. Huang's integrity and love of the land.
Shiuwen says "This tea is like sitting on the beach on a hot summer day. A little salty and sultry, and there's even a mango cocktail!"
We changed the name, but the farmer and garden is the same as the Plum Blossom from last season. 'Plum Blossom' no longer fits as a name, but 'Sweet Cream' seems like it will fit not only this tea, but the previous harvest as well. We're still getting to know Mr. Huang and his land, but I think this name will stick.
