Sun Link Sea Tea, Spring 2020

Sun Link Sea Tea, Spring 2020

This tea is produced at LonxFengXia of SunLinkSea(Also spelled ShanLinXi), located in ZhuShan township of Nantou County.  LongFengXia’s elevation is 1,800 meters at its highest point; the winding mountain roads leading up to this tea region are cloudy and misty all year around.  We would describe it as breath-taking and fairytale-like.  A beautiful and pristine landscape worth preserving at any cost.

The tea itself has a refreshing verdant green flavor that dominates through all three tasting phases.  While it is unquestionably a green oolong, the tea has also been very lightly roasted, which results in a bit of complexity in the middle note.  We would describe the flavor as malty.  The end result is an oolong that has a surprisingly full body for a low oxidization tea.  The aftertaste exhibits hint of cashew and honey.

Steeping Instructions:

Prepare 3 grams of tea leaf (slightly less than a teaspoon) per 100ml of water(about half a cup).

For the first two steeps, 90°c water for no longer than 60 seconds will provide plenty of flavor.  From the third steep onward it is fine to add up to thirty additional seconds per steep. This should provide between four and six re-steeps depending on the quality of the tea.  For larger vessels (teapots of over 500ml) re-steep potential is usually lower.
