This is a high mountain oolong with a low oxidation level produced in Mt. LaLa in north-west Taiwan. It is a relatively less known tea region compare to some of its famous neighbors such as Mt. Li, but with its significant tea quality and unique terroir flavors, Mt. LaLa no doubt has great potential to become the next star. For a while, some tea dealers still would try to label teas from Mt. LaLa under the title of Mt. Li to gain more profit from its fame, but for the people who have tasted and compared teas from the both, the difference is undeniable and the preference may differ.
This tea is processed in a plantation isolated from other tea and vegetable farms to avoid pesticide contaminations. The diurnal temperature range commonly exceeds over 10°C due to the altitude of such a region. The diurnal temperature range is highly associated with high mountain tea quality: the anti-frost mechanism of tea tree leads to rich flavors and creamier mouthfeel. The soil in this region both drains well and is rich in organic matter, which is ideal for tea tree cultivation. As a result, oolong from this region is tasty and highly recommended.
