Fujian Province in China produces an enormous amount of tea. Like Tie Guan Yin, Se Zhong is an oolong produced largely in Anxi County in central Fujian Province on the Southeast coast of China across from Taiwan. In fact it was the tea plants, the knowledge, and settlers from central Fujian that began the great Taiwanese tradition of oolong. Another great oolong tradition, that of the robust Yan Cha oolongs, sprang up in the Wuyi Mountains in the northern part of the same Fujian Province. Se Zhong oolong is produced from a different varietal than TGY, however, and seems usually to be on the light side compared to the oxidation of the average TGY. Another oolong well worth getting to know! There are so many!
Hope you all have a pleasant Memorial Day holiday today.
