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.
