AliShan High Mountain Oolong
Our Alishan High Mountain Oolong comes from Alishan mountain, probably the most famous tea growing region in all of Taiwan.
It's quite a magical place if you ask me, especially around the National Park area. For me, Alishan holds a special place because my first taste of Taiwanese High Mountain Oolong was an Alishan while I was living nearby in Chiayi. I've been drinking them ever since!
Recently over the last few years I've spent quite a lot of time there meeting with Alishan farmers. We work directly with two Alishan farmers and indirectly with a third who is an amazing roaster. At present we are offering tea from a farm north of the Shi Zhuo Ecological Conservation area. This area has a cool and moist climate where the necessary mist and sunshine take turns on the leaves transforming them into what can only be proper Taiwanese Gaoshancha.
Harvest: Spring, 2017
Brewing: One teaspoon to 8oz. 195 deg. water for 3-4 minutes.
You can drink this Alishan for hours and not get tired of it. It’s clean, refreshing and invigorating.
Note: Because of its reputation, Alishan tea is faked all over the internet and in China. Ours is farm direct and guaranteed authentic ;)
