Tea Review: Shanlinxi Premium High Mountain Oolong (Beautiful Taiwan Tea Company)

Shanlinxi Premium High Mountain Oolong
Beautiful Taiwan Tea Company
Type: Oolong
Origin: Taiwan, Shan Lin Xi
Product Description: Farmer Zeng, who produces our Misty Mountain Oolong grows this amazing tea on the same farm but at a much higher elevation. This tea comes to us from the highest elevations of Shanlinxi, one of the best growing areas in Taiwan. Each afternoon misty clouds come in so thick you can hardly see anything for a while. It's quite remarkable and very zen.

Like our other teas, this tea is expertly grown, hand-picked, hand-processed and vacuum packed at the source! Only our "Face-to-Farmer" sourcing insures you premium quality.

Temperature: 195° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3-5 minutes

The dry leaves have a floral aroma.

The pale yellow-green infusion has an aroma that is buttery and lightly floral with sesame notes.  The taste is sweet, buttery, and lightly floral with a long finish.

While steeping for 3 minutes produced delightful results, the flavor and aroma became more fully developed after a 5 minute steep.  The flavor begins to mellow by the third steeping.
