Description

Shan Lin Xi (杉林溪, pine forest) is a high-mountain green oolong from Nantou county, Taiwan.

This vintage has a light roast, bright green and fragrant character like mountain herbs, and balanced sweetness.

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, similar to those of a gyokuro, are richer in both amino acids and caffeine.

Preparing Instructions:

Quantity: 5-6 grams per 150ml gaiwan.
Water temperature: 95ºC. From fresh spring water or filtered water.
Brewing time: 20…seconds
Infusions: 6-8
