Taiwan High Mt. < Shanlinxi Oolong * 30% Roasted> 150g
As you open the package, the rolled leaves of this Shanlinxi, exquisitely big and green, already promise the generous and robust flavors of a true high mountain oolong. And it doesn’t disappoint. Bursting with taste, what steams from the cup is a vision of lush mountainsides draped with moist foliage and all the fragrance of an early summer morning.
Moderately brisk on the scent, this Shanlinxi has that unique nuts-and-honey feel to it that only the better brand of high mountain teas may offer and that lasts throughout many brews, offset at first by a surprisingly prominent element of mineral briskness that is toned down ever so slightly as you go along.
