Grown on Mr. Liu's farm on Qing Jing Mountain at an elevation of 1,700 meters, this spring-harvested high mountain ("Gao shan") oolong is a special treat for oolong tea lovers. Lightly oxidized, it has a fresh, crisp aroma, creamy texture and light and smooth taste.
High mountain teas are highly prized by tea connoisseurs in Taiwan. The environmental conditions are ideal for growing high-quality tea. The sharp difference in day and night temperatures allow the tea plants to grow more slowly, thus developing more aroma and sweetness. And the abundant cloud and fog surrounding the mountains allow the tealeaves to absorb more moisture.
