Shan Lin Xi Oolong Tea is another tea from Nuvola Tea. It is another Taiwan Tea grown at a height of 1600 to 1800 meters.
When I open the package I could smell a very fresh aroma of tea leaves. The leaves are rolled into small buds of glossy and vibrant green. The feeling was smooth in my hand.
Once brewed, the leaves were opened nicely. Actually they opened and expanded into large leaves making me surprise! A small rolled tea bud inside the pack was expanded to a set of large leaves. That’s really interesting to watch before tasting the tea.
The colour of tea is a greenish yellow gold colour. It was mild & creamy in taste. But still I could feel mellow and sweet after taste which stays on the tongue. This tea gave a rich taste of good oolong tea which made me wanted to try again.
Please check Nuvola Tea website for more information and purchasing of this tea.
Welcome back! 🙂
I have heard about this Oolong Tea, but never tasted one. Looks authentic.
The tea pot, OMG just love it. It makes the tea drinking ritual even more memorable.
Yep, even I cannot believe that the small crushed tea leaf becomes this big.
Good review & great shot!! I should try some day.

I am not sure about Taiwan premium tea but over here we have so many varieties. At times, its difficult to choose which one but I am ok with anything. That said, its a good review and need to look out for such a brand.
This tea looks so good. Haven’t heard of this before.
Hi! You have a nice blog with amazing clicks . I have just started following you and it would be highly encouraging if you may visit/follow me back.
This post reminds me of growing up in Singapore, where my parents and I used to sit out every night and drink oolong tea…such sweet memories!
PS:I am hosting a Bits of Brit giveaway currently(open to Singapore residents only), so I really hope you will enter:
Taiwanese Oolongs are so good. The Taiwanese really know their stuff, and have elevated the art of drinking Oolong to unpredented levels. I found a good article all about it here: and also this site: http://www.oolong-tea.org/taiwan-high-altitude-oolong-tea/ below has a good range of Taiwanese Oolongs and a great blog/newsletter – with the archives well worth reading – check it out , its called Tea Tidings
Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News.
Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem
to get there! Thanks
