A classic Oriental Beauty in Banciao's Lin Garden
But now, the long wait is over! A simpler, more classic Oriental Beauty from the Miaoli/Hsin Chu area has satisfied me. It's not a modern 'top model' kind of OB with a thin, tall fragrance. It's more full body, sweet and with a long after taste. This is the 'classic' profile of good Taiwanese Oolongs.
It's the kind of robust Oolong that can also be kept in a thermos bottle and drunk outdoors anywhere. Here, today, is Banciao's Lin Garden with 2 visitors from France. This historical landmark is a wonderful background for one of Taiwan's most recognized tea internationally. It shows the importance to preserve the classic beauty of the (Chinese) past. Be it architecture or tea culture! This is also why I'm glad to share this and my other teas with you directly!
(In the coming week, I'll review this OB in more detail...)
