Description

Spring 2016

Xi Ding Oolong Tea is from Taiwan's Alishan tea district, grown at an altitude of 1250 meters. Located along the Alishan Highway, Xi Ding is a popular place to watch the sunrise.

Xi Ding is an area famous for its fertile soil, supporting vegetable farming as well as tea plantations. The year-round misty conditions make it ideal for producing top-quality oolong tea.

Xi Ding oolong tea is a hand-picked and hand-processed. It is classed as a high-mountain tea (Gao Shan) - meaning it is grown above 1,000 meters.

Xi Ding oolong tea produces a sweet liquor with a slight astringency that mellows in subsequent brews. This is an oolong with plenty of flavor and aroma, suitable for multiple infusions.

This tea is basic & simple - but very good. Probably better to use as a daily tea. Of all the mid - range teas I have tried, this one is my favorite. There are of course other teas I like better, but this is still an excellent value. I actually would give it 3.5 stars - if that were possible.

I liked this tea a lot. I could drink this tea all day and not get tired of the taste. It is deep and rich and you cant over-brew it if you leave it steep too long.
