Lishan High Mountain Spirit Oolong tea, Lot # 141
Lishan teas could very well be the best high mountain teas of Taiwan. The Lishan tea area sits majestically on the central ridge at altitudes ranging from 1500 m to 2400 m The average yearly temperature is below 20 degrees and frost can be experienced in the winter time. Tea grows at a slow pace therefore production is limited to only 2 crops a year. Owing to the particular climate and terroir, Lishan tea is rich in catechin which reduced the bitter and harsh elements in the liquor. The higher theanine and soluble nitrogen content contributes in heightening the compelling exotic sweetness of this tea. It is truly a unique tea coming from a uniquely rich soil and growing in the best natural conditions one can find. This particular High Mountain Spirit tea is produced by Mr. Gao, a member of the Atayal Nation that populated the island and these mountains way before the Chinese laid foot on them. No other Lishan tea shines with the same purity and authenticity as this one. It’s a must for all oolong enthusiast.
