High Mountain Symphony is made from tea trees grown in Taiwan’s ChiLai mountain range at an elevation around 2000 meters (6500 feet). The hand-plucked tea leaves were oxidized to 30%, then slowly charcoal roasted over several weeks to coax the complex symphony of aroma and taste from the tea leaves.
This tea boasts a unique complexity of flavor distinct amongst Tung Ting oolong because it utilizes the traditional Tung Ting tea-making process on delicate high mountain tea leaves.
The steeped tea releases a floral/fruity fragrance with a strong hint of honey. It tastes robust and charcoal roasted without being bitter. The tea is full-bodied, complex, and ever-changing - as if you were enjoying a taste symphony. After sipping the tea, notice the pleasant sweetness that lingers at the back of your throat.
Note: All our teas are vacuum-packed to guarantee maximum freshness, from the tea makers to your hands.
