One of Leo's favorite teas, and one of the most popular teas in the store!

If you're looking for an excellent example of high mountain tea that is more than just a famous name, this is the tea for you.

It's a myth that high mountain oolong can't be aged over time. If made well, they can age just as well as any pu-erh or dark oolong. 

This tea is all about texture. Super rich, buttery, and almost luxurious, a hallmark of a good high mountain tea. The flavor is sweet and fresh, without being overly floral or green. The aftertaste is even sweeter.

Alishan is one of the most iconic high mountain regions in Taiwan, but not all Alishan oolongs are created equal. Because Alishan is so famous, there's a big range of quality on the market.

Our Alishan is made by one of the region's most famous tea masters, with leaves picked in a natural garden. She has been working with the same leaves for more than 20 years and knows how to bring out the best in every harvest. No pesticides or chemical fertilizers are used for the tea which really captures the essence of the high mountain environment. We're big fans! 

Origin: Alishan, Taiwan

Notes: creamy, buttery, sweet

Cultivar: Qingxin

Leo's Personal Take (March 10, 2024):

This new farm I found on my Taiwan tea trip in 2023. I never thought I would need to find a new Alishan tea farm, but Taiwan has had a rough year in terms of the harvest season. Insufficient rain has been a major issue in producing high-quality tea. It took me almost 9 months to finally confirm that this new farm I discovered just below Alishan National Park is pretty amazing. It's probably even more buttery than my original one. The calmness of this new oolong, I would say, has lost a little touch, but excels in every other aspect. I consider this a winner. Sweet, thick, buttery, creamy - exactly what I am seeking in a high-quality Alishan oolong.

Alishan of this quality is rare

Alishan is a classic but most are single note and not memorable. This one has nuance and complexity!

I drink it ever day. I always prefer the second or the third time that I’ve brewed the tea.
