From Taiwan Tea Crafts

This beautiful scenic area of central Taiwan, which is also classified as a Natural Reserve, produces one of the most well known and referenced teas to define the Gao Shan (high mountain) taste of Taiwanese oolongs. Our Alishan Oolong is from Shi Zhou area in Chiayi County. This township has a soil structure that is more gravelly and layered in shale and has numerous gardens that produce fragrant, well balanced teas that are pleasant and mellow with a well defined sweetness. The gardens are situated at a slightly lower elevation than the highly rated Lishan, Dayuling and Shanlinxi areas. This allows growers to use a variety of tea plants successfully. Cing Xin varietals dominate, like in the case of this tea, but Jin Xuan strives as well (see our Alishan Jin Xuan, Lot 207) and give magnificent teas.

This is beautiful! It has a strikingly beautiful honey-floral aroma, and a delicate, barely honey-sweet flavor with no bitterness. Love this!

Thats great to know! How long have you been drinking tea from Taiwan tea crafts? I just recently found them…

@SenchaMatcha, I just discovered them and placed an order because of their free shipping promotion. I’ve only tried 3 of the teas I received, but I’ve been really impressed both with the teas and the level of customer service. I’ve ordered direct from another Taiwan-based company and I was pretty disappointed, so I’m glad I found this company.

SenchaMatcha

Cool. they seemed pretty legit.
How long did it take for your package to come?
I’ve been waiting for mine for a few days now and the tracking number just says its shipped :(

Siberia

It probably took about 10-12 days. I thought it was pretty fast since it was coming from Taiwan. Everything arrived in good shape with extra samples. I’d like to hear which teas you try.

SenchaMatcha

:) I’ll let you know once the package arrives. 10-12… hmmm… that means I’ll probably get mine sometime next week.
