Chaidim Organic Shin Chin Oolong No. 17 is a top grade tea. The infusion has a light jade color and the taste is mellow and refreshing.
The number 17 stands for the tea plant hybrid called Jade Pearl (“Ruan Zhi”) because of its color, green jade, and its form, like a pearl. It is a very popular Oolong in Thailand and Taiwan.
Cultivated in the spectacular Mae Fa Luang Area, and sunbathing until sunset, these young buds have developed a flowery vegetal aroma, highly prized by the Oolong aficionados. A perfect No. 17 to fill your mornings with energy.

Brewing tea is a wonderful alchemy. It requires you to use your “six senses” to understand the tea harmony. By paying attention to time and water temperature, you can optimize the brewing up to the desired taste. Of course, it differs from one tea to another, as well as the vessel to be used. For a great tasting experience, a gaiwan or a yixing clay teapot are incontestable accessories. Practice is the key.
