Da Yu Ling #103k
103k, 2500 meters
(清心烏龍) Green Heart Oolong Cultivar
Famous for its pristine and remote steep slopes, Da Yu Ling tea has become increasingly sought after by tea enthusiasts. Naturally limited in production by its remote nature at high elevations (2000-2600 meters), this tea is evermore scarce due to the government program returning tea garden lands to naturally growing forest. Yes, a good thing overall, but it makes it that much more difficult to source. Fortunately, we introduce to you General In and Mother In’s Da Yu Ling tea. Managed by the retired World War II hero and his wife, this remote garden is a rare one that has kept its tea garden…one of the few left.
This unique treat of a tea has a more refined sweet liquor, with floral aromatics of rose petals and a cooling mint finish. A top shelf pick for a great harvest in 2017.
Da Yu Ling teas are often identified by the mile marker of the Cross Central Highway (Road #8), the higher the number, the further up the mountain! This year our tea friend was returning from tea collecting, and stopped to take photos of beautiful flowers. While he was stopped, just ahead the road was pelted with a rockslide! Tea collecting can be quite treacherous! We’re ever so thankful for the adventuresome spirit of our tea friends!
