Appearance & Taste

Premium Taiwan Alishan Oolong Tea

The dry tea leaves are hemispherical in shape, tight and knotted. Their colour is between dark and yellowish green. The tea soup is honey golden.

The taste is mellower than a normal Alishan Oolong. It’s also rich in milky aroma. Combined with a fruity and floral aroma, it also contains high mountain charm. The tea feels smooth in the mouth, with an elegant, delicate and long-lasting aroma.

Taste: Floral, Fruity, Milky

Origin

Ali Mountain

The Da Ali Mountain area is famous not only for its scenery but also for its tea. This premium grade Taiwan Alishan tea comes from the tea garden where the sea level is around 1000 to 1600 metres. The tea produced there is regarded as the best oolong tea in Taiwan. The reason is that the climate is cold, surrounded by clouds and fog in the morning and at night, and the average daytime is short. All these mean that the bitter substances in tea buds and leaves reduce while the sweeter flavours increase. Furthermore, due to the large temperature differences between day and night, the tea tree grows slowly, which leads to thicker layers of mesophyll in the tea leaves and higher pectin content. This gives Alishan Oolong Tea a long-lasting sweet taste. Many tea trees here are also irrigated with mountain spring water, that’s why Alishan Oolong Tea also has a very special, cold mountain aroma.
