This is an entry-level high mountain tea produced in the Mt. ALǐ (Alishan) area. Mt. ALǐ is a big name in different aspects for different reasons, including political ones. Cutting the story short, Mt. ALǐ 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. ALǐ 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 high-mountain oolong tea we samples.
