Description

Grown Without Pesticides

Spring 2016

Wu Ling oolong tea (wu-long tea) is our best tea in our regular collection. Wu Ling is a mountain area in Taichung county and its high altitude (more than 1800 meters) contributes to the ideal growing conditions for wu long tea.

Another reason why Wu Ling wu long tea is of such fine quality is the soil of the Wu Ling area. Wu Ling was a fruit producing region for many years until economic conditions favored imported fruit over home-grown apples and pears. Former orchards in the Wu Ling area were converted into oolong tea plantations, and Wu Ling wu long tea is renowned for its fruity quality.

Wu Ling is located on Mount Li (Li Shan or Pear Mountain) and wu long tea from Mount Li is the most prized wu long tea in Taiwan. It is ideally suited for gong fu style brewing and can be re-brewed up to eight times while still retaining plenty of flavor.

More information about the Li Shan area of Taiwan (including a section on Wu Ling wu long tea) can be found on this website about Wu Ling farm.

My first purchase from Tea From Taiwan. I was guided by the previous comments and, upon tasting the tea, can say they are very precise - floral, very fresh taste; very lightly fermented leaves; its flavor is incredibly steady surviving numerous brews that keep this delightful greenish coloring, without turning yellowish that in many Oolongs indicate flavor change. I will continue tasting other samples but Wu Ling has won my heart forever!

So glad I ordered some samples because the one I thought I would like I found a bit heavy. Then I opened The wu ling, I am addicted, it is very light and floral. This is the first time I have used this company and I cannot speak highly enough of customer service, excellent!

(Tea Provided for Review) Another delicious floral oolong. This has an incredible mouthfeel and is quite complex. It changes quite a bit in later steepings. From my blog: http://rah-tea.blogspot.com/2015/05-

WOW !!! This one of the best oolong I've had so far. The taste and aroma is very harmonious. My impression after the second steeping is fruity, creamy, flowery with a very nice flower clean and fresh aroma that remains in the mouth for quite sometime. I really love this tea !!! Thank you to Tea From Taiwan for spoiling our palate with this very premium quality oolong ;)

Delicious! Great even after 3 infusions. I simply make my tea in a french press cup and drink all day long. It is never bitter. I am always careful to make the first infusion with water no hotter than 185 degrees. For The next infusions, I use boiling water that i let sit for a couple of minutes before pouring.

The oolongs from Tea From Taiwan are the best quality. It’s amazing that even though they are so similar, they are also very different. This one smelled very sweet in the package! Also, even in the samples there are these little packets of something to keep the oolong fresh… almost like how new shoes come with that in the toes! Not to liken this tea to shoes or anything! First steep // water is very cooled // 45 sec. First and foremost this is very sweet and smooth, silky! It’s almost like a lighter milk oolong, though I don’t think this is supposed to be a milk oolong. It doesn’t have any of the floral/peachy characteristics that oolongs usually have. It’s very good, even on the first cup! Second steep // water is cooled // 50 sec. This cup is still very much like the first… still no peach/floral/vegetal. The flavor is stronger though. The water might have been a bit too hot. It’s just very sweet, sugary, and creamy! Third steep // 60 sec. This still isn’t very peachy/floral/
