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. One taste sensation found in superior Gao Shan Cha is what Taiwanese tea tasters refer to as Dan Bai Wei  蛋白味—"egg white’s protein aroma,” referencing the richness of umami tasting amino acids, glutamic palate sensations and the creamy broth mouth-feeling. This Shan Li Xi oolong has a fresh and green infusion from skillfully executed light fermentation to capture the green essence. The specific micro-lot from spring was harvested in a garden that is located in the foggy and steep evergreen and pine forests of the north face of Shan Lin Xi Mountain. We can find green essence and clarity with intense floral notes of star gazer lily and fragrant mango.
