Description

Spring 2015

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.

Having a strong liking for spring Oolong tea, DaYuLing winter tea gives me a little surprise. It's thick as expected, but amazingly smoother than DaYuLing spring tea. I really love its mellow fruity aftertaste.

This is a delicious oolong with many layers or dimensions of taste to explore. The first steep comes on surprisingly strong with a slightly bitter yet sweet punch. It mellows out quickly afterwards, achieving a more balanced floral sweetness with no hint of bitterness by the third steep. I've had no problems steeping this Da Yu Ling 5-6 times. Truly a high quality Oolong.

To start off I must mention how potent this tea is, I am no stranger to DaYuLings, but this feels much stronger than what I am used to. I used the entirety of my seven gram sample in my 100ml teapot brewed with water at 190 degrees and let it steep for one minute. If I were to brew this again I'd cut the amount of leaves and how long I brewed this tea for in half. Regardless this is a very nice tea, a little more minerally than many I have, but well worth the price. It has a rather thick mouthfeel. I was surprised this was harvest in october 2014, it feels very much like a winter oolong.

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 :)
