    Harvested in Taiwan's highest-elevation and most revered tea region, Da Yu Lin has a level of complexity, aromatics, and flavor that is simply unrivaled by other Formosa oolongs.

    True Da Yu Lin like this has a reputation as Taiwan’s most coveted tea. At over 8000 feet above sea level, the source garden is close to treeline, receiving snow in the winter and thick fog year-round. This cooler growing environment slows plant metabolism and growth rate, allowing the leaves to develop an extreme concentration of flavor compounds, giving rise to the tea's fabled taste.

    As a result, Da Yu Lin offers a luxurious mouthfeel, with a perfectly balanced profile of fresh cream, gardenia, citrus, and sugarcane that evolves with each brew.

    This is our go-to brewing method for Formosa oolongs, since it balances each element of this style’s character. For an even sweeter and richer taste, decrease you water temperature while extending brew time; for a brighter and more vegetal taste, increase your water temperature while slightly decreasing brew time.
