New Taiwan Shui Xian

The new Taiwan Shui Xian is ready; it's finally back at Floating Leaves! Compared to the usual Chinese Shui Xian, it's much less oxidized and is a moderate fired oolong. It's a fun tea to taste and to learn about the differences that a varietal can have depending on where it's grown.

This particular Taiwan Shui Xian offers a satisfying hearty roasting note, and a grain-like taste. Come taste it with me or you can order it online at www.floatingleaves.com.

Our new winter Baozhong is scheduled to arrive in Seattle within two weeks. Our buyer in Taiwan is sourcing other Taiwanese Oolongs for us as well, and we should have those within the next month.

Well, it's Thanksgiving time again. Wherever you are, be safe, eat lots of good food and drink tons of good tea!

Some of the winter Taiwanese Oolongs have been harvested and some are still being made. In the next couple of days, I will be able to give you updates on our upcoming winter Oolong selections.

Stop by if you have chance. Let's have some tea together!
