Alishan Oolong (Oolong from Ali Mount)

 

Mount Ali (Alishan) is one of the most popular tourist areas in Taiwan. It is rich in scenic beauty and features fresh air and clear mountain passes. In the tea world, Alishan is famous as a great tea-producing region in central Taiwan.

 

Alishan Oolong is one of the finest Formosa Island Oolongs. It consists of large rolled leaves that have a purplish green appearance when dry and an amber green appearance when infused. Our Alishan Oolong tea is processed by using only the best top two leaves and a bud, with the stem intact. It is grown between 1,000 and 2,300 meters above sea level. This part of the mountain is humid with low temperatures and plenty of fog: perfect conditions for creating Alishan High Mountain Oolong’s outstanding flavors and aromas.

 

Alishan Oolong is picked in April and May. During this time the leaves have more oils in them, giving the tea its wonderful flavor and aroma. The brewed tea has a pale yellow color with a light orchid aroma and a slightly sweet, yet complex flavor which is said to resemble fruits and flowers.

 

How to brew:

Use 203-208° F water to brew this tea. Rinse the teapot (Yixing pot recommended) and the tea cups with hot water. Take 2 teaspoons of tea (or as personally preferred) for each 8 ounces of water. Put the tea leaves into the teapot and pour in the desired amount of water. Steep for 4-5 minutes.

P.S. Alishan Oolong can be brewed multiple times. Increase the steeping time for subsequent brewings.
