Spring 2018. Nantou. Exceptionally smooth with floral overtones.
Grown Without Pesticides
Long Feng Xia oolong tea is a first grade tea from the Shan Ling Xi district. It is grown at an elevation of about 1800 meters in the Long Feng canyon of Shan Ling Xi Mountain. The area is enshrouded with fog throughout the day, making ideal conditions for producing oolong tea.
This tea is produced from the bud and two leaves of the tea plant which are hand picked and hand processed with a fermentation level of about 35%. It brews to an exceptionally smooth liquor with floral overtones.
Long Feng Xia oolong tea is rated as "ding ji" (world best) and is in great demand. Very little of this tea is available for export, so we are pleased to be able to offer Long Feng Xia oolong tea at this time.
