Growing from Ali-Shan, the southern high mountain area of Taiwan where the altitude ranges from 1,000 to 1,500m. The climate and environment is very suitable for tea tree growing.
This Qing-Xing Oolong cultivar has light milk aroma, fresh floral flavor with smooth throat sweetness and most importantly, the Ali-Shan mountain flavor from its growing environment.
