Shan Lin Xi is the name of the mountain that this tea comes from. Truthfully, this tea goes far beyond that. Thomas Shu, a man who has dedicated his life to Taiwanese tea in the U.S. sent us a collection of teas as a gift. They were older teas that he had baked, looking for interesting notes. This one stood out to all of us—we bought all he had!
