Winter 2013

Zhong Shu Hu oolong tea comes from the Zhong Shu Hu area of Ali Mountain (Alishan) - one of the most famous tea producing regions of Taiwan. The climate here is cool and moist with cloud cover and mists every day. These conditions are ideal for tea because the plants grow very slowly and produce tender, flavorful tea leaves and buds.

Zhong Shu Hu oolong tea has a sweet taste and refined aroma. Each brewing brings out new flavours and taste sensations. This tea has a complexity that provides continuous nuances with every cup.

Zhong Shu Hu oolong tea can be re-brewed several times while maintaining an excellent flavour. We recommend the Gong Fu method of preparation to bring out the best of this excellent tea.

The first thing that hit me soon as I open the bag is the wonderful aroma it smells floral and green and just beautiful, The taste was really nice too, it was nice and greenish and floral at first then creamy and almost buttery with some hints of fruit like apple or pear by the third infusion it developed slightly spicy notes almost like cinnamon that really played well with the fruity notes that were still there, This tea is superb to me.

This is a wonderfully delicate tea with hints of sweetness, fruity flavours and a pleasant aroma. I re-steeped it multiple times and enjoyed the depth in the flavour.

This tea is exceptional. Even with multiple steeps this tea is not bitter in any away and the tea develops a mild sweet flavor around the fourth and fifth steeps. I will be purchasing this tea again on my next order.

This is a perfectly balaned tea. It has a beautiful floral aroma and taste. Not too much. Just right! It finishes with a smooth buttery flavor. This is Oolong at its best!

Very good tea corresponds to its description on the site. Very interesting flavor and aroma persists for more than 10 infusions of Gong Fu method.
