Da Yu Ling oolong tea (wu-long tea) is a premium-grade oolong tea from the Da Yu Ling area of Taiwan's Taichung county. Its high altitude (more than 2600 meters) makes this one of the highest tea plantations in the world.

Da Yu Ling has a wonderful fragrance and taste. It is a lightly oxidized oolong tea with a refreshing palate that is sought after by the most demanding tea connoisseurs. Da Yu Ling is produced in limited quantities and is one of the most prized teas of Taiwan.

Da Yu Ling is located on Mount Li (Li Shan or Pear Mountain). The high elevation of this area causes the tea leaves to grow slowly and develop their smooth, rich flavor. To fully appreciate this fine oolong tea, it is recommended to brew it gong fu style.

Being a fan of Japanese Greens and Taiwanese Oolongs, I have tasted teas from many suppliers and prefer the smoother tasting products. Tea From Taiwan's Da Yu Ling Oolong is by far the best quality Oolong I have found. The taste is smooth, buttery and stays with you all day. Yes, it is expensive but it is definitely worth the price. Thanks, Ross.

Being used to LiShan Tea directly bought in Tainan in the past, I appreciate this new source. The Da Yu Ling Oulong Tea is a smart tea with typical Oulong taste which fits perfect to our western taste.

This one was really good it was vegetal yet floral and slightly sweet with a sweet grassy aroma, I chose this one for meditation, yes you can meditate while brewing tea and even looking at the tea, lost story anyways this is a very good tea for meditation :)

znakomita herbata i świetny sklep. Zamówiony towar przylatuje do Polski po 6 dniach. A produkt... spróbujcie sami. Kto nie pił nie zrozumie, kto poznał - będzie wracał. Piotr

I have to agree with Jacob S. To me it is indeed no better than a mediocre AliShan. I much prefer the DongDing MingXiang, which is outstanding.
