From Beautiful Taiwan Tea

Mt. Ali (AliShan) is probably the most famous tea growing region in all of Taiwan. Its tea is well known in Asia and is difficult to get recently as Chinese connoisseurs with increasing means are enjoying the good stuff. This Oolong is grown in the ShiZuo (Stone Table) area of AliShan which is above 4,000 feet. A cool and moist climate here produces this wonderful tea. Like it’s counterpart from ShanLinXi, our Misty Mountain Tea, you can drink this tea for hours and not get tired of it. It’s clean, refreshing and invigorating. This is a good first choice if you don’t have much experience with Taiwanese Oolongs. It was the first Oolong I tasted over 20 years ago and I’ve been drinking them ever since:) Like all of our teas, it’s hand-picked, hand-roasted and fresh.

Location: AliShan mountain, Central Taiwan.

Chinese name: 阿里山石桌高山茶/Ali Shan ShiZuo Gao Shan Cha

I’ve been able to try this one a few times now – the first time was a higher temperature (208°F), with only a 5 sec steeping time. Honestly, the only difference between the two, is the extra creaminess for the first 3 steepings, when brewed at a lower temp. After these first few steepings, the taste profile is the same.

Definitely a nice hand picked oolong and the leaves are some of the largest oolong leaves I’ve seen. It is very clean and smooth. Oddly enough, the taste is so clean, it reminds me of a soapiness that I find hard to explain. If you have ever been punished by a parent, for something you shouldn’t have said in an unorthodox form of discipline(i.e. having your mouth washed out with soap), you would have some sort of understanding. Of course, this is not the overall taste, but it is certainly there.

The leaves are very giving in their refreshing floral fragrance and taste. I’ve long since forgotten which steep I’m on currently, which I know is many (over 8) and it appears it has tons left to give. This tea has a nice calming sensation to the body. Very relaxing.
