Four season Oolong is named after the varietal from which it is made. This hearty tea bush was discovered by a tea farmer in his tea garden in the district of Muzha, near Taipei. It is said to be a kind of wild tea. The character of this tea is also wild and vigorous. The farmer had noticed that some of the tea trees in his garden where growing very fast when others didn't even have any tea leaf buds yet. So, he planted these bushes more systematically and found he could harvest them 7-8 times a year, even in the winter time when tea bushes are usually dormant. So, this hearty varietal was given the name “Four Season Oolong” to match the vivacious character of this tea plant which yields a large quantity of tea per year. Therefore more and more tea farmers have started growing this “Si Ji Chun” plant in the last 10 years.
