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.
Tea shoots that are harvested in winter tend to be richer in its natural scent. Winter came late in 2018 to Taiwan but the temperature dropped dramatically and kept itself low for a long while, which has resulted in a tea that carries slightly more floral scent but the sweetish aftertaste seems to be shorter.
《鹿野茶房評選：D 日常。一般而言，冬茶的生長速度較慢，茶葉所能累積的天然香氣較濃厚。2018年台灣全年均暖，冷氣團遲至12月底報到但氣溫急降。提供了此批次鹿野烏龍更足的花香、但回甘度卻較扁平的環境因素。A 極品 / B 上品 / C 佳品 / D 日常 / E 隨飲 / F 瑕疵》
