Shan Lin Xi (杉林溪, pine forrest) is a high-mountain green oolong from Nantou county, Taiwan.
The tea’s fragrance provides a refreshing and vitalizing effect. It has a relaxed, deep taste with a hint of vanilla, its texture is smooth and buttery. Later infusions bring out a unique, slightly astringent greenness that settles on the tongue with a very pleasing sensation. With time the tea’s primal taste turns into a long-lasting, rather sweet aftertaste.

Shan Lin Xi, with its altitude of 1400 meters above sea level, is amongst the highest tea-growing areas in Taiwan. The cooler temperature slows the growth of tea leaves thus resulting in smaller and more tender leaves. These leaves, similarly to those of a gyokuro, are richer in both amino acids and caffeine.
