This lightly oxidized oolong comes from Li Jia village in the Ali Shan range of Taiwan and is produced by the Fang sisters, 3rd generation female tea farmers made with the Si Ji Chun (Four Seasons Spring) tea cultivar. Sitting at 1600M, this tea garden is surrounded by a forest of fir, and bamboo. The nutrient rich soil produces a rich and full bodied oolong with notes of orchid, peach and sugarcane.

Tasty and smooth and gentle

I lived in Taiwan and have tried many Oolong teas from the Alishan mountain area. This one is very smooth and gentle tasting. Not bitter. Really enjoyed the well balanced flavor.

Wonderful Oolong!

Round, smooth and rich mouth feel. Golden color. Taste of sweet apricots. Leaves can make at least two great cups, unfurling from tight nuggets to surprisingly large.

Ali Shan

Taiwanese Oolong Tea

This full leaf tea is produced in the Ali Shan mountains of Taiwan from the Si Ji Chun (Four Seasons Spring) tea cultivar. This lightly oxidized oolong is prized for its full mouth feel, soft tropical, floral and stone fruit notes and a candied finish. This tea can be steeped several times and is enjoyed with both a traditional brew process or in a gaiwan service.

Ali Shan

Located in eastern Chiayi County in central Taiwan, the Ali Shan (Mountain) Range is famous for its scenic beauty and high elevation oolong teas. This elevation helps to give the tea its rich and floral flavor. The two growing seasons, Spring and Winter, each produce a different flavor profile in the tea.
