Spring 2018. Lishan. Renowned for its fruity quality.
Grown Without Pesticides
Wu Ling oolong tea is grown in the Wu Ling mountain area of Taichung county and its high altitude (more than 1800 meters) contributes to the ideal growing conditions for oolong tea.
The soil of the Wu Ling area contributes to the fine quality of Wu Ling oolong tea. Wu Ling was a fruit producing region for many years until economic conditions favored imported fruit over home-grown apples and pears. Former orchards in the Wu Ling area were converted into oolong tea plantations, and Wu Ling oolong tea is renowned for its fruity quality.
Wu Ling is located on Mount Li (Li Shan or Pear Mountain) and oolong tea from Mount Li is the most prized oolong tea in Taiwan. It is ideally suited for gong fu style brewing and can be re-brewed up to eight times while still retaining plenty of flavor.
