OOLONG TEA

32 reviews

Ali Shan has been rebranded as Snowfield Oolong and is now offered in our Single Origin line.

 

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.

Tasting Notes:

Gardenia, sugarcane, peach

Love Ali Shan Oolong

The flavor is smooth with a touch of earthiness that lingers in your mouth. It’s perfect with most foods or great on its own for an afternoon break.

Good tea- poor labelling

I wish Smith tea would put their preparation together instructions on their tins. I prepared this wrong and wasted my $ because I didn’t have my phone to pull up these instructions.

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.
