From Taiwan Tea Crafts

We like to say that this superb high mountain tea terroir is just up the mountain from us. Ok, maybe a few mountains away up, but we are very proud to say that Shanlinxi has developed into one of the highly reputed growing areas in our own Nantou County, and rightfully so. Shanlinxi oolong distinguishes itself from other Gao Shan oolongs in that it features clearly defined balsam notes that make it particularly appealing to the palate and nose. Many say that the luxuriant fir tree forests surrounding the gardens have something to do in conveying this fresh evergreen feeling in the cup. This spring 2020 iteration comes from the same producer as last year’s Lot 825 and was produced in his brand new factory. It is also made especially for us with a slightly higher oxidation level using plucking of younger shoots. You will notice a good presence of buds in the infusion. This is not the usual standard as smaller leaves means lower yields for the producer and require more care in the ball-rolling process to not crush them to dust. For us it means a wonderful multi-layered experience which will reveal a creamy buttered corn at first, then fresh balsam notes and a flowery finale as if your were eating tender wild flowers. This is one of our most pleasant surprises of the season.

**I had mistakenly added this tasting note for the wrong tea, so I’m correcting now.

Backlog.

This is one of the teas from the great Steepster freeze of 2020 that I’m getting around to logging now. My memory is a little hazy because I only had a couple of sessions with it, but I remember it being a solid SLX with the usual alpine florals and tropical notes. A little lighter and lacking the full mouthfeel of previous harvests. Good for 6-7 steeps.
