Shanlinxi High Mountaon Oolong Tea is one of the most popular high mountain teas from Taiwan and was only very lightly fermented with 20% using traditional methods. The popular Qing Xin cultivar was used for cultivation. The loose tea leaves will be carefully harvested by hand in spring 2019.
Our Shan Lin Xi comes from the best growing areas in Long Feng Canyon and is cultivated there at an altitude of 1,800 meters. In this area, the tea plantations are shrouded in fog all day, which makes for excellent growing conditions.
Due to the slight fermentation, this Shanlinxi Oolong tea brings out the popular floral flavors, which are reminiscent of flower nectar. One of the Shan Lin Xi Oolong criteria is also the floral scent, which can be enjoyed especially during the first two infusions.
Long Feng Xia Oolong is also called in Taiwan "Ding Ji" (world best). Due to the strong demand within Taiwan, this tea is usually not exported. We are therefore very proud to be able to offer this tea to our customers.
Connoisseurs of lightly fermented oolongs will love this tea!
