From T-Oolongtea

This high quality Shanlinxi Zhu Wan Oolong Tea is handpicked, handcrafted and produced from Qingxin Oolong varietal grown in the mountain areas of Zhu Wan district in Shanlinxi area. The aroma and taste of the tea are intensely floral and sweet, very rich, complex and delectable with almost no bitterness and astringency. This tea also comes with a very sweet and long lasting aftertaste, and stands up very well to multiple infusions. It is a very enjoyable Shanlinxi tea we highly recommend.

Shanlinxi High Mountain Oolong tea is grown in the Shanlinxi mountain range located in Zhushan township of Nantou county of central Taiwan. The mountain range is one of the most popular and famous high-mountain-oolong growing regions in Taiwan. The tea are grown at approximately 17500 meters above sea levels, and most tea trees grown in this area are Qingxing Oolong, which is the most sought-after varietal.

Creamy-Vegetal, perhaps? Regardless…I LIKE IT!

It’s also light and fluffy. A tad sweet and maybe even the slightest-slightest hint of ‘stone’ or ‘mineral’ taste trying to hide underneath.

I can’t help but eek out an “mmmm” as I continue to sip…as if it were my first!

A very nice Oolong! Thumbs up!

My favorite Oolong teas are Alishan, although, I’ve got to admit that Shanlinxi teas are providing some stiff competition. This Oolong is amazing! So sweet and creamy … and yet so light and crisp.

The third and fourth infusions are stronger, but, smoother. The floral notes are really apparent in these infusions, resting on the back of the palate while also melding with the creamy notes.

It’s really quite an interesting tea – if you like Ali Shan Oolongs you might just find that you also enjoy Shanlinxi. They’re similar, but there are striking and intriguing differences too. Very lovely!

Sounds interesting. How floral is it, though? I’m not a huge fan of the floral teas, but I don’t mind if it’s in the background.

It’s been a while since I’ve had this, so I can’t say that my memory is crystal clear when it comes to this tea, but, I will say that the floral notes are much smoother than some of the sharp notes that I sometimes get from floral tones in an Oolong. The floral notes get stronger with subsequent infusions, but with the first two or three infusions, they are more of a background note.

Yesterday afternoon I thoroughly enjoyed this oolong, sent to me by NofarS. Thanks so much!
I steeped 4oz in my green oolong gaiwan, which is a lower wider gaiwan & it nice for giving the leaves room to open. The dry tea is super dark green nuggets, some almost black. There is a vaguely floral & vegetal aroma, so I was thinking this would be a floral tasting green.
My formula: 4 oz of tea – short steeps in rounds of 3 – pour the first one into a cup, & combine the 2nd & 3rd into a pitcher. This works nicely for me on most gongfu style teas, as I can’t just stand over the stove forever. This way I can brew some tea, go sit & teach, or whatever.
The first round: 4/6/8 seconds – Not floral at all! The taste was a little bready, light a mild sourdough, but not actually sour.
2nd round: 10/12/14 – the first cup was a little salty, but then the tea in the pitcher had a real nice sweetness to it, like honey drizzled over sourdough, but not really the flavor of honey, just a sweet taste.
3rd: 16/18/20 Still sourdough bread, only actually a little sour now, & still sweet. Also, at this point a floral hint started rising.

I think I did another round, but didn’t take notes.
And it’s a sipdown!
