The spring Alishan oolong is Leo's favorite tea, and one of the most popular teas in the store. Now behold its sibling, the winter Alishan oolong! This is the first time we've ever carried the winter Alishan. Fans of spring Alishan will be interested to know the winter version seems to be a little bit sweeter and less grassy than the spring one. They both are very satisfying––same rich and buttery flavor with a long-lingering fresh and sweet aftertaste.

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 naturally a big range of quality on the market.

This particular tea has been served at famous tea houses and restaurants around the world. The masters never use any pesticides nor any chemical fertilizers, which is one of the many reasons why this winter Alishan is so special. 

Also, our Alishan is made by women tea masters––not a common sight twenty years ago. Today we find women in Taiwan engaged in the highest levels of the traditionally male industry.
