Topic: Shanxia and Hei-Huan Shan
I have recently gotten some aged Taiwanese wulong from Shanxia, and am getting some gaoshan wulong from Hei-Huan Shan (also in Taiwan), and was wondering if anyone has any knowledge/experience of/with these areas and their teas?
The aged Shanxia is interesting; it's very loosely rolled like an 80's TGY, but "aged Shanxia wulong" is literally all the information I have on this tea. I don't know the age, and have never encountered another tea from this area.
The vendor gave me the following information about Hei-Huan Shan:
"I only got few packs. This place is famous in Taiwan, every winter Taiwanese like go there expecting to see snow falling down.(it's hardly for Taiwanese to see snow view). Supposedly only few tea farmers at that area, for us seldom people know there is tea from Hei Huan shan. Hei (together) Huan (happy)."
I wouldn't even know how to translate the mountain name into a proper name, but at least that much of the mystery is resolved :)
