Shan Lin Xi Oolong Tea is one of the famous Taiwan oolongs. It is from the Shan Lin Xi region in Nantou County of Central Taiwan. The tea is also called Shan Lin Xi High Mountain Oolong as the tea trees are planted at about 5,900 feet (1800 meters). The cool climate and high altitude provide the ideal growing conditions for the oolong tea.
The brewed Shan Lin Xi oolong has a light golden color. The tea has a smooth taste with a hint of floral fragrance, releasing a floral sweetness around the tongue as it traveled down the throat. It is a perfect tea after a heavy meal.
