Taiwanese Oolongs are particularly well known due to its unique growing conditions and skilled craftsmanship. The tea estates of Ali Mountain offer a refined high altitude tea developed over many centuries atop of majestic peaks and alongside stunning waterfalls. The harvest season spans twelve days, and during that time, tea picking, oxidation, roasting and rolling occurs around the clock. Each step in the process is mindfully controlled to ensure that the tea is crafted to optimize its aroma, taste and finish. Grown at 7000 ft above sea level, the dew from such high elevation enriches the leaves with a natural milky taste that is rare and truly exquisite.
