Alishan High Mountain Oolong Description:
This Alishan High Mountain Oolong is produced by the people of Dabang tribe of the Tsou People of Taiwan. This is a truly unique tea sharing some of the best qualities of Oriental Beauty and Alishan Oolongs. Like Oriental Beauty the leaves used for this tea are chewed by leafhoppers to impart a slightly sweeter unique flavor. Unlike Oriental Beauty however, which is an open twist oolong, this Alishan oolong is tightly balled. It features an almost toasted honey aroma with a sweet and lingering taste. Pluck style is a bud and 2-4 leaves. It is lightly oxidized but a medium/heavy roasting is applied to the finished product. Plantation is managed in accordance with EU Regulations (EC834/2007) for pesticide and fertilizer free production at elevations of 3,200ft to 5,000 ft above sea level.
This is a complex oolong with flavors of cream, caramel, and flowers.
