Harvest: Spring 2018 Shape: Rolled semi-balls
Oxidation: Light (~20%) Roast: Light / Oven
This tea is produced using the traditional method of producing High Mountain oolongs. It is made from tea leaves hand-plucked in ShiZhuo, a major tea harvest region of AliShan Mountain, at an elevation above 1500 meters (4921 feet). Oxidation level is light, at around 20%. After shaping and drying, the tea leaves are lightly roasted in an electric oven to help preserve the tea’s fragrance.
The brewed tea is pale golden with a green hue. The tea releases a delicate floral fragrance that compliments the light vegetal flavor characteristic of high mountain oolongs. The liquid feels gentle and smooth as it slips across your palate, leaving a soft sweetness lingering at your throat. While the flavors are delicate, the tea remains flavorful up to 4-5 steepings. There is no bitterness in this tea.
Fragrance plays a critical role in enjoying High Mountain oolong teas. For maximum enjoyment, we suggest that you consume the tea within 2-3 weeks of opening.
Note: All our teas are vacuum-packed to guarantee maximum freshness, from the tea makers to your hands.
