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.
Sun Link Sea tea this year is vibrant and green. Compared to last year, floral notes dominate the palate of the Winter 2021 harvest. Gardenia, a hint of tropical flowers like hibiscus can be detected in the middle note and taper. We would describe this tea as elegant. It is simple, flowery, and clean, but a little bit weak than the Spring one. add more tea leaf to bring out stronger flavor.
Prepare 4 grams of tea leaf ( One full 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.
