ShanLinXi Special Reserve
This tea is a premium GaoShanCha. The special reserve teas are grown at very high elevations and take longer to grow. They take their time growing and develop a deeper, fuller flavor. I sometimes like to drink the special reserves from a wine glass. Really! This tea has a heavy liquor, it’s not dry at all or bitter. It’s very clean and refreshing. You won’t get floral notes because it’s grown so high in ShanLinXi there are no flowers. Explore this tea slowly with many infusions and you might catch such notes as butterscotch. We recommend brewing this tea gongfu style. Like our other teas, this tea is expertly grown, hand-picked, hand-processed and FRESH!
