Exceptionally fine green oolong, grown at 1300m altitude in Shan Lin Shi. The smoothness and complexity of flavour would easily allow it to be mistaken for a 2000m altitude Li Shan tea. Late spring harvest radiates freshness and floweriness. The tea is made of Lunaze cultivar which is particularly suitable for growing in high altitudes and makes a very complex, smooth and rich infusion.

Origin: Shan Lin Shi, Taiwan

Picking: Buds and two leaves

Energy: Cooling

Flavour:  Very smooth and creamy tea with a silky mouthfeel and a strong floral character that lingers on the palate. There are no flaws in this tea. If brewing gong fu style, it can be made again and again, and each infusion offers a stunning bouquet of floral scents along with a lively freshness and sweet taste of summer berries.
