Shan Lin Xi High Mountain Oolong Winter 2018
Harvest: Winter 2018
Origins: Long Feng Xia (Dragon Phoenix Gorge), Shanlinxi, Nantou, Taiwan
Shan Lin Xi is one of our favourite tea growing regions on Taiwan, but this tea is so gentle that it reminds us of the flavours that are found in the higher tea growing region of the prestigious Da Yu Ling! This tea is harvested from the famed Long Feng Xia, which is one of the highest regions in Shan Lin Xi tea growing region of Nantou. Made in the Taiwanese style of a lightly oxidized oolong, this gentle and smooth oolong has creamy vanilla notes that is refreshing and sweet. This is a very small batch that we bought from our Taichung based tea maker friend, and this is a batch that he had been very pleased with!
