龙凤峡 Lóngfèng xiá is a subrange within the famous Shan Lin Xi growing area in Nantou county, Taiwan. Tea of this pedigree — known as 高山乌龙 gāo shān wū lóng or high mountain oolong — grown at elevations between 1700-1850 meters, are fabulously mineral-rich and buttery, yielding thick, brothy, floral infusions because of the slow rate at which their leaves must grow. The higher climes subject the tea bushes to a thinner atmosphere and an attenuated photosynthesis process because of the almost ever-present cloud cover; ideal habitat for good tea. Classy, milky, fragrant, the Yung family graces us again with their world-acclaimed tea. Not to be missed, every year we look forward to this family's unmistakable signature execution of this style.
青心 Qīng xīn cultivar leaves harvested in early May.
Enjoyed this nice buttery oolong. Fair price point.
A continuous favorite!
