From Red Blossom Tea Company

Rising 1900 meters above sea level, San Lin Xi lies in the center of a range of peaks that bear its name. Of the 15 mountains that form the range, San Lin Xi is the highest.

Harvested the last week of April 2015 from a tea garden that sits only a couple hundred meters below peak, our San Lin Xi Spring harvest is oxidized to nearly 20%, a more traditional method that intensifies aroma, flavor and after taste of the tea. This traditional crafting method takes oxidation to the point where all the tea’s innate fruitiness and creaminess is optimized, yet balanced.

Amongst our Formosa oolongs, San Lin Xi stands out for its unique, almost tropical, tang. The flavor and aromatic profile of this tea is rich with notes of flowers, tropical fruit (pineapples and papayas!), brown sugar and cream. The finish is at the same time aromatic and sumptuous.
