Shanlinxi High Mountain Oolong Tea is one of the most popular high mountain teas from Taiwan and was only very lightly fermented at 20% using traditional methods. The popular Qing Xin cultivar was used for cultivation. The loose tea leaves will be carefully harvested by hand in winter 2022.
Our Shan Lin Xi comes from the best growing areas in the Long Feng Canyon and is cultivated there at an altitude of 1800 meters. In this area, the tea plantations are shrouded in fog all day long, providing excellent growing conditions.
Due to the slight fermentation, the popular floral flavors of this Shanlinxi Oolong tea, which are reminiscent of flower nectar, stand out particularly well. One of the Shan Lin Xi Oolong criteria is the floral scent, which you can enjoy especially during the first two infusions.
Long Feng Xia Oolong is also called in Taiwan "Ding Ji" (world's best). Due to the strong demand within Taiwan, this tea is not usually 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!
