Elevation: 1600 meters
Grown at 1600 meters, the leaves that make up this tea spend every day in the cold, cloudy mist that settles on the mountain. The temperature and short average sunshine make the leaves and buds tender, and give high-mountain teas special characteristics such as a golden-yellow color and sweet taste and aroma that endures repeated brews. Like most of our teas, the tea changes, improves, and refines with each subsequent brewing.
Many people get stomachaches after drinking tea, without realizing that this is a sign of the quality of tea. Our taiwanese high-mountain oolong is low in caffeine and is free of chemicals that can irritate the stomach. You can easily drink this tea on an empty stomach.
High-mountain oolongs carry aromas and flavors of tropical fruit (such as melon), and taste soft and sleek. The light fruit flavor is often complemented by warmth and smoothness.
