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 2000 meters above sea level, Li Shan (“Pear Mountain”) is one of the highest elevation producing regions of oolong tea on the planet. This winter crop batch from Li Shan has a very fresh and vibrant green style of fermentation with the signature notes of green apple, star gazer lily, gardenia and umami richness.
