Shi Zuo oolong tea (wu long tea) is grown in the Shi Zuo (Stone Table) area of Alishan (Mount Ali). At an altitude of 1300 meters, Shi Zuo has a cool, moist climate that is ideal for growing tea.

Shi Zuo oolong tea is hand picked and hand processed in the traditional manner of Taiwanese High Mountain oolongs. The processing results in ball-shaped tea pellets which consist of two or three leaves and a bud. These pellets open up during brewing to release the full flavor of the tea.

In order to experience the full potential of this tea, we recommend brewing it Gong Fu style. This method of brewing brings out the sweetness and complex undertones that mark this tea as one of the best that Taiwan has to offer.

I love the overall flavor and smell of this tea. When brewed in a clay pot it has a very resonant smell, slightly warm, and a little sweet and very smooth.

This is one of my favorite teas so far, after I have tried at least 4-5 different varieties. The tea has a very complex flavor that is almost magical in every sip. It is also very sweet and comforting. I absolutely love it.
