There are high mountain oolongs and there are High Mountain oolongs.

This tea comes from the same people like our 2020 Light Charcoal Roasted Alishan oolong. This year we decided to bring unroasted tea – from winter crop.

The sweetness of this Alishan oolong is almost sticky, overwhelming.

Fruity and milky, made from Jin Xuan bush with zero astringency typical for many high mountain oolongs.

Here you will find: grassy freshness, almonds, strawberries, yogurt, cream and notes of white flowers (lilly of the valley, lilly). And something fresh and vivid you can literally name: mountain breeze.

Queen of sweetness and balance.

Aftertaste is very strong and sweet.

Highly recommended! 



Origin: 1300 meters above sea level, Rueili,  Ali Shan, Jiayi county (Chiayi), Taiwan

Harvest: Winter 2021

Varietal: Jin Xuan

Temperature of water and amount of leaves: 100 C 5-7g/100ml.

Suggested brewing method: Yixing clay teapot or gaiwan of low capacity. First, you should pre-heat empty teapot/gaiwan and tea cups with boiling water. When the teapot is warmed, then you put the tea leaves in. After smelling hot and dry leaves in the pot, gently pour the boiling water to the pot.  First infusion should be very short- not more than 30-40 seconds. Second infusion should be little bit shorter than first cause the leaves are already opened. We suggest to increase brewing time for 5-10 seconds in each next brewing. You can prepare at least 8 nice brewings!
