Shan Ling Xi oolong tea is from a mountain area in Nantou county of central Taiwan and is located at 1600 meters to 1800 meters above sea level. Shan Lin Xi (Sun Link Sea) - which literally means "Fir Forest River" is a Forest Recreation Park, about 17 kilometers and an hour's drive up the hill from Xitou. It is perhaps the largest tea growing area for Taiwan High Mountain Tea. The geography and coinciding climate are ideal conditions for cultivating prime quality tea.Oolong produced in Shanlinxi area are characterized by a smooth yet complex taste, with floral notes and a slight astringency that makes them nice and refreshing. Tea plantations in this area have been established for over 30 years, and this tea is a local favorite here in Taiwan.

Note: 50g, 100g loose tea are taken from a 300g tin, metal tin is not included. Buy 300g to get the gift packaging.

Brewing Guide: We highly recommend brewing Oolong gongfu style to appreciate its many layers of flavor. It may be prepared in a regular teapot, an Yixing clay pot, or in individual cups. Use about 1 tsp. per cup (8 oz.) of water heated to 80-90°C (176-194°F). Infuse for 2-3 minutes and pour off. The leaves may be resteeped 1-3 times.
