Shan Lin Xi High Mountain is grown in the unique terroir of the Shan Lin Cha mountain range in central Taiwan. Shan Lin Xi High Mountain is a black tea produced in a similar manner to the famous and elite high mountain oolongs of Taiwan; the brew has similarities to high mountain oolongs, but is much deeper, and darker in flavor, the leaves also bear traces of leafhoppers which add character and depth to the blend.

Our Shan Lin Xi is characteristically creamy, and has a velvety smooth body. Thorough oxidation provides an exotic, fragrant fruitiness, freshly cut fruit wood aroma with a hint of spearmint. Once steeped you will notice soothing notes of cinnamon, vanilla, rose, and a touch of savory. If you appreciate in the pleasures of high mountain oolongs, you must try this black tea!

This is a balanced pleasure. Brewed, it really does hit that cinnamon note, but is still well rounded. It has a long, dry finish and made me want to go for a walk. I think I'll drink it with breakfast to get me going.
