From Norbu Tea

This Black Tea (Hong Cha) comes from the Alishan Scenic Area in Southwest Taiwan’s Chiayi County. As with all of our tea from Ali Shan, we work exclusively with one family who live in Dabang Village in the portion of Alishan Township reserved exclusively for Taiwan’s Tsou indigenous ethnic group. After well over a year of refining their production methodology, the family made this first publicly available black tea production from the 2012 fall harvest for sale only on Norbutea.com! By the way, I had the privilege of tasting most of the test productions over the past year, and this one is by far my favorite…which is why we bought all of it!

This tea was produced from Qing Xin (Green Heart) varietal tea plants, which are known in Taiwan as “Qing Xin Oolong” or just “Oolong.” Just so there is not too much confusion, even though the name of the varietal used to produce this tea is “Qing Xin Oolong”, it is a black tea (Hong Cha).

The plantation where this tea was grown lies in the hills above Dabang Village at an altitude of 1,200+/- Meters (4,000+/- feet), and it was harvested in October during the Fall harvest season of 2012.
