TAIWANESE OOLONG (SPRING HARVEST 2010)

Shan Ling Xi oolong tea is from a mountain area in Nantou county of central Taiwan and is located at about 1600 meters above sea level. This high elevation provides ideal growing conditions for oolong tea, as the air remains cool year round. Tea plantations have been established in Shan Ling Xi since the 1970's. It has since become known as one of the premier tea producing regions of Taiwan and Shan Ling Xi oolong tea is prized by Taiwanese tea connoisseurs. Shan Ling Xi oolong has an exquisitely smooth taste with just a hint of flowers. The slight astringency to this oolong tea provides a refreshing cleansing effect to the palate, so this tea is ideal after a heavy meal. The smoothness of Shan Ling Xi tea has a buttery quality to it, and later brewings bring out a unique smokiness that settles on the tongue with a very pleasing sensation.
