    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.

  • Brewing Guide

    Da Yu Lin has a wonderful subtlety of character that requires conscientious brewing. We suggest doing so with a lighter hand, both in terms of the quantity of tea used and water temperature.

    To brew Da Yu Lin in a gaiwan or small tea pot, we prefer steeping 5 grams of this tea at 195 degrees for 4 minutes on the initial brew, continuing at 3 minutes on the second brew, and then increasing that in increments of 30 seconds for subsequent brews. For lighter infusions, use hotter water and half the brew time.
