Da Yu Ling oolong tea originates in the growing region of Taichung County in Taiwan. The tea gardens here are more than 2,400m above sea level. Consequently, the leaves grow slowly, producing smooth and thick tea leaves. This particular tea can be found on Mount Li, also known as Li Shan or Pear Mountain. It is typically harvested each spring and fall. Because of its scarcity, Da Yu Ling tea is always in limited supply, but a search for this rare variety is well worth the effort. Each steeping releases a taste that is rich and smooth with a touch of orchid.
