About This Tea

The mountainous regions of Central Taiwan produce some of the most exquisite oolong teas in the world. These teas are often called “Gao Shan Cha” (High Mountain Tea) because the tea gardens are situated in very high altitudes compared to all other oolong tea growing regions. The mists in the high mountains shroud the tea bushes during the peak harvesting season, facilitating the gradual growth of new tea buds and concentrating the amino acids and aromatic compounds. The shade grown tea has fewer sharp tannins and a smoother, sweet flavor. The thick mists and clouds in the high mountain regions provide a natural shading effect for the oolong tea gardens which enhances the smoothness and richness of tea. At more than 1850 meters above sea level, Shan Lin Xi is one of the highest elevation producing regions of oolong tea on the planet and is noted for its fruity and flowery oolong teas. This winter crop was harvested in a new tea garden located deep in the forest of Shan Lin Xi. It has a very vibrant and golden tea soup style of fermentation with fragrant accents of tropical mango, white lily, gardenia and smooth mouthfeel and lasting aftertaste that endures over many rounds of brewing.
