From Taiwan Sourcing

This is a very special Oolong that will be featured in our upcoming blog post, which will explain in detail how we process Oolong in Taiwan. This tea was processed by a member of Taiwan Sourcing, which makes it a very special and distinctive tea in our offering. This is also one of the teas that was grown in an “extremely natural” environment, making it probably the “happiest” tea in our tea collection.

The garden where this tea was grown is filled with all sort of insects and spiders, and the tea trees are as tall as a human being (around 2 meters tall!). These kind of tall and natural tea trees are very rare in Taiwan where plantations are managed and plants are trimmed to allow for easy access and easy picking. These tall tea trees were neglected for more than a decade allowing them to grow naturally making them hard to pick. Much like the old tea trees in Yunnan, these old natural Taiwan tea trees yield a high quality leaf with an almost magical happy energy (qi)

Despite being lightly oxidated, this tea has a character that imparts a surprisingly comfortable and tranquil mind/body state for the drinker. We decided to name this tea “Tall Tree” as an homage to the tall natural trees from which they came!
