This Shanlinxi Oolong is a classic High Mountain Oolong tea which is traditionally lightly fermented and also heavily roasted.
This oolong is cultivated on a tea plantation in the Shanlinxi area at over 1600 meters. The very popular Qing Xin cultivar is grown there, which is known for its exceptionally round taste.
And this is how the heavily roasted Shanlinxi tastes:
The taste is very well balanced and the consistency of the tea is reminiscent of a liqueur that gently caresses the tongue.
The aromas of Shanlinxi Oolong Tea are very intense and range from roasted nuts and a sweet caramelized note and an exceptionally long-lasting finish. The strong roasting adds light cinnamon notes.
The aftertaste is long lasting. An ideal tea that is also suitable as a companion during dinner.
The extraordinarily high quality of this Shanlinxi Oolong tea allows up to 10 infusions. The first infusions are very strong and dominated by roasted aromas, which become softer and softer over time and then allow the sweet, nutty aromas to emerge.
