Description: Song Bai Chang Qing, literally evergreen pine is harvested from the mountain which is located in the center of Taiwan called Nantou. Unfortunately, this oolong tea, produced at high mountains is getting very rare nowadays on account to its increasing demand and reputation. Our Song Bai Chang Qing is produced from Qing-Xin Oolong. This is the cultivars traditionally used for Taiwan oolong that gives a very refreshing taste.
Tea grown at organic garden appears to be less active and less productivity as tea gets less nutrition and pesticide as compared to the ordinary tea garden. As the identical characteristics, tea leaf turns into yellow color and sweetness in flavor and taste is outstanding. Plucking is carried out in Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. The best quality is produced either from Spring or Winter.
Brewing Guide: We highly recommend brewing Taiwan Oolong gongfu style to appreciate its many layers of flavor. High mountain oolong may be prepared in a regular teapot, an Yixing clay pot, or in individual cups. Use about 1 tsp. per cup (8 oz.) of water heated to 80-90°C (176-194°F). Infuse for 2-3 minutes and pour off. The leaves may be resteeped 5 times.
