Da Yu Ling High Mountain Oolong

September 23, 2013

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.
