If you’re accustomed to our previous Lots since winter 2016, you’ll be pleased to know Lot 824 comes from the same grower we’ve been following for a few years now which makes an expressive, yet balanced tea. His teas are quite complex and already propose a rich texture which is a sign of a generous and well-made tea. 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 Rui Fong area in Chiayi County. This is more recently developed area for tea and 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 but the characteristic high-mountain taste and aroma is very much there! A bright pastoral aroma will great the taster and prepare the taste buds to a refreshing honeysuckle quench with a silky smooth finish. This is a good benchmark Alishan that highlights the easy-drinking character of this terroir’s teas. This is a very good introductory tea to high-mountain oolongs.
