    Winter 2019. Nantou. Exceptionally smooth with floral overtones.

    Grown Without Pesticides

    Winter 2019

    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.

    Winter 2019. Lishan. Renowned for its fruity quality.

    Grown Without Pesticides

    Winter 2019

    Wu Ling oolong tea is grown in the Wu Ling mountain area of Taichung county and its high altitude (more than 1800 meters) contributes to the ideal growing conditions for oolong tea.

    The soil of the Wu Ling area contributes to the fine quality of Wu Ling oolong tea. 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 oolong tea is renowned for its fruity quality.

    Wu Ling is located on Mount Li (Li Shan or Pear Mountain) and oolong tea from Mount Li is the most prized oolong 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.
