High Mountain Oolong

€5,50€55,00


Our High Mountain Oolongs are grown at a height of 1600 meters on the Meishan mountain and at 2000 meters on the Lishan mountain. These mountains are part of the Alishan mountain range, located in the south part of Taiwan, with the Tropic of Cancer passing through these mountains. The tea is surrounded by mist all year. These mountains are characterized by significant temperature differences between day and night. A lot of fog in the morning, combined with regular rainfall and fertile soil creates ideal conditions for the tea to grow. These conditions make the leaves grow evenly, with a uniform and very thick leaf. This creates an elegant tea with fragrant forest-like elements
