Shanlinxi tea is cultivated in Taiwan at an altitude of about 1400-1600 meters. The batch now on sale was harvested in May 2021.  It is similar in style to other Taiwanese light oolongs. The leaves are dark green and rolled up small. When brewing, the leaves open up, thus letting all their flavors into the drink.

The aroma of the tea is light and fresh floral. The taste is multi-layered and pleasantly balanced overall. The aftertaste in the mouth is sweet and long. The same leaves should be brewed three times so that all the flavors come out.

Stewing:

1. Western method: teaspoon per 2 dl of water at 95 C, 2-3 min.

2. Chinese method: 4-6 g per 2 dl of water 95 C, 30-40 seconds, 3-5 times of brewing, in which case the next time is always 20 seconds longer than the previous one.

3. Mug brewing Taiwanese style: 2 teaspoons (approx. 5 g) water 3.5 dl 85-95 C, brewing time 1 - 1.5 min.

4. Cold brewing: 2 teaspoons per 5 dl of water around 18-22 C, brewing time 6-8 hours.

Note! We sell tea by the gram, so the tea is packed in one bag. For example, if you order 2 pieces of tea, it is 50 grams in total, which is packed in one bag.
