We just got some Da Yu Ling High Mountain Oolong to share with you. This batch of tea is some of the best spring tea that Taiwan has to offer this year.
This tea is an exemplary example of Taiwan High Mountain Oolong.
Garden: This is a newly developed farm in Taiwan's prime tea growing region. The tea plants are just coming of age at 5 years of growth out of virgin forest soil in an environment that is ideal for High Mountain Oolong cultivation.
Flavor: Flowery, fragrant herbal tones. Full, balanced, fresh floral/green flavor. Lingering, aromatic finish.
Harvest: Hand picked, small batch. May 2013.

We recently visited Mr. Liu when we hosted a visitor from Italy who was keen on experiencing the local tea culture. Our guest was truly elated to be served tea by a true artisan of the trade. Mr. Liu served us three different teas that were all locally harvested this past spring. They varied only in their degree oxidation and roasting. And the one that was sufficiently oxidized, but only lightly roasted, immediately impressed us.
