Deerland Oolong is produced in TáiDōng, the eastern part of Taiwan. It is lightly oxidized and processed like the most high-mountain oolong tea, but because of the environment temperature of such a producing region is higher than on the mountainous areas, the aroma of these teas is bolder and the flavor is stronger and more bitter. The proper amount of astringency is considered an important feature of a well-made oolong in Taiwan; perfectly smooth teas are not as interesting as teas with a bit of roughness. Also, the occurrence of astringency usually is correlated with the occurrence of the taste of umami and the occurrence of the sweetish aftertaste.
Deerland Oolong, therefore, is an ideal starting point for people who is new to low-oxidized Taiwanese tea: the characteristics of such low-oxidized oolong are easily perceivable. Getting familiar with the different aspects of Deerland Oolong can prepare one to further explore the world of high mountain low-oxidized Taiwanese oolong tea.
The weather in 2019 is (too) warm and humid year-round and unfortunately, had made the winter harvest not even possible this year in the Deerland region. The Autumn harvest became the last yield of the year and the taste of this bach is milder than usual. Those who do not enjoy a tea with a strong, slightly astringent finish seem to find their new way to Deerland Oolong through this year's autumn production.
《鹿野茶房評選：D 日常。2019年全年過暖，茶樹生長期因而季季延長。原本一年至少可採三季的鹿野茶區本年僅收成兩季，秋茶已是2019的年尾茶。其滋味較春茶淡薄，多了些許蜜味但回甘短。雖不比春茶爽口，卻對喜歡和緩茶味的人更有吸引力。A 極品 / B 上品 / C 佳品 / D 日常 / E 隨飲 / F 瑕疵》
