About this tea

The mountainous regions of Central Taiwan produce some of the most exquisite oolong teas in the world. These teas are 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 and naturally shade the tea bushes during the peak harvesting season. The foggy and cool mists filter the intense UV light.

This high mountain micro-climate facilitates the gradual growth of new tea buds which concentrates the amino acids and aromatic compounds. The result is an oolong tea with splendid aromatic complexity and nuances. At more than 2000 meters above sea level, the gardens in Li Shan (“Pear Mountain”) are the highest elevation tea producing regions of oolong tea on the planet. The teas from Li Shan are very fresh and vibrant green with subtle fermentation and elegance of aroma. This batch from the highest peak garden exudes intense floral notes of white lily with tropical fruits and subtle umami flavor.

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. The thick mists and clouds in the high mountain regions of Central Taiwan provide a natural shading effect for the oolong tea gardens which, like the shaded cultivation of gyokuro and matcha, enhances the smoothness and richness of tea.
