Exceptionally fine green oolong, grown at 1300m altitude in Shan Lin Shi. Late spring harvest radiates freshness, the floral character of this tea is powerful and rich. This is a very enjoyable tea to drink over multiple infusions, one portion of leaves will last for 5+ infusions. Enjoy the scent of your empty cup after finishing the tea, a sweet aroma will linger in your cup for a good while. 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.
