This is a quality high-mountain tea produced in the Mt. ALi (Alishan) area.
Mt. ALi is a big name in different aspects for different reasons, including political ones. Cutting the story short, Mt. ALi is a well-known tea region but lacks proper grading and retailing institution for many years. Fraud is not uncommon, and ill-managed tea farms are not exceptional.
While many tea plantations clusters in mountainous regions, the Mt. ALi tea we sourced was made from a plantation isolated from the others so that the tea trees can be freed from fertilization and pest management malpractices. The soil is well-ventilated and rich in organic layers. The resulting teas taste just as rich both in terms of flavors and notes. We, therefore, use this particular tea as the minimum standard to assess the quality of the high-mountain oolong tea we samples.
