This tea was grown in the heart of the best growing area of Long Feng Xia in the Shanlinxi district, known for its signature oceanic feel.  Teas from this area are highly sought after in local markets and often do not make it off the island of Taiwan.   

The tea liquor has a thick, luxurious mouthfeel that is sweet and full flavored, with rich vegetal and soft pale floral notes. 

While not certified organic, this tea is grown in a garden that has tested free from agrochemicals for two years running.

Brewing Recommendations

Serving Size: 3-5g per 100ml of purified water.

Ideal Brewing Vessel: Porcelain tea pot or gaiwan; or high-fired, low profile thin clay teapot.

Steeping: Boil water to 212F/100C and then wait for the water to stop bubbling before pouring the water down the inside of the brewing vessel, not directly on the leaves. Brew for 30 seconds, then replace the lid and pour the liquor into a gong dao bei (fairness pitcher) before apportioning into tea cups.  Add 15 seconds for each subsequent brew. Remove the lid of the brewing vessel to allow the leaves to cool between steepings. Flash brewing in this manner ensures this tea can be brewed up to 5+ times and brewed again the following morning if left overnight.
