Description

This was one of the first high-mountain teas from the Ali San area in the southern mountains of Taiwan. About 20 years ago, Taiwan's tea industry went through a radical change; they stopped producing the old teas that were exported to the west and began focusing on these better oolongs made for the newly prosperous domestic market. Now we all can appreciate the lovely lemony and creamy flavors of this lightly oxidized oolong.

Ingredients

Oolong tea.

 Details: Tea only came to Ali San in the last few decades. Before that, the high mountains in southern Taiwan were logged. Now these scenic mountains make great oolongs in the balled style of their neighbors in southern Fujian Province.
 Dry Leaves: Dark green rolled leaves.
 Liquor: Light gold.
 Aroma: Potent gardenia and lilac aromas are topped with notes of crystallized sugar and fresh citrus.
 Flavors: Ali San is among the creamiest of oolongs. It gives a nice coating sensation and some butteriness, along with lime and citrus notes and a quiet, underlying vegetal flavor.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Medium-bodied, creamy. This tea may be brewed multiple times.
 Brewing Time: 3 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 175ยบ
