Dayuling Tea is considered by many to be some of the finest tea available in Taiwan. A relatively small tea-producing area located on Li Shan Mountain in central Taiwan, Dayuling is particularly sought after in a region already teeming with high-quality teas. Most of this is due to the high elevation of the area, with some farms in Dayuling competing with the Kolukkumalai Tea Estate in India for the title of highest tea plantation in the world.
This Winter Dayuling was grown at an elevation of 2100 meters - an ideal environment for growing greener oolongs like this, and a large factor in its clean, sweet flavor and lack of astringency. Oolongs of this altitude brew very clean and their overall profile is a testament to the environment in which they grew. Overall, this is a textbook example of a nice winter tea: nice feeling in the mouth and throat, and a subtle yet long lasting aftertaste.
Comes in vacuum-sealed bags of 75g each.
