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: All our teas are vacuum-packed to guarantee maximum freshness, from the tea makers to your hands.
