TAIWAN GREEN High Mountain ShanLinXi
HIGH MOUNTAIN WULONG ShanLinXi Green
GREEN TEA -
ShanLinXi Green is grown and harvested from tea farms in the ShanLinXi mountain region, located above 1800 meters (5900 feet) in the Nantou County's ZhuShan township. Blessed with a perfect climate, soil rich with minerals and organic substances, and perpetual cloud and mists, tea leaves grow thick and rich in nutrients.
These delicate tea leaves are subjected to a lighter oxidation around 20%. After shaping and drying, the tea leaves are lightly roasted in an electric oven to preserve the tea’s fragrance.
The brewed tea is yellow-green. The tea has an elegant fragrance and tastes clean and crisp with a light vegetal flavor characteristic of high mountain oolongs. There is no bitterness in this tea.
Please note that fragrance plays a critical role in enjoying High Mountain oolong teas. For maximum enjoyment, we suggest that you consume the tea within 2-3 weeks of opening.

* Note: Characteristics of Taiwan oolong style
(1) Rolled ball shape allows for easy vacuum packing and a slower release of flavor.
(2) Use of small-leaf tea plant variety (var. sinensis), which produces a delicate and sweeter tea with less bitterness and astringency than big-leaf variety (var. assamica).
(3) Brew at high temperatures 95-100oC (203-212oF). For most black teas, the recommended temperature is 85-90oC (185-194oF) to prevent the tea from becoming overly bitter and astringent.
