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.
