Si Ji Chun
Oolong Si Ji Chun, translated "four seasons" is a 1980 developed cultivar from Taiwan. Si Ji Chun is also marketed as "Four Seasons" but has no TTES number as it wasn't breed by the Taiwan Tea Research and Experiment Station. The appellation "Four Seasons" is due to the cultivars ability to produce a even quality during all seasons. Oolong Four Seasons is intensiv fruity in taste and should be infused only for short time as it tends to astringency if steeped too long.
Despite the fact that Si Ji Chun was developed in Taiwan it's nowadays grown in many areas.
