    Grown Without Pesticides

    Spring 2019

    Zhong Shu Hu oolong tea comes from the Zhong Shu Hu area of Ali Mountain (Alishan) - one of the most famous tea producing regions of Taiwan. The climate here is cool and moist with cloud cover and mists every day. These conditions are ideal for tea because the plants grow very slowly and produce tender, flavorful tea leaves and buds.

    Zhong Shu Hu oolong tea has a sweet taste and refined aroma. Each brewing brings out new flavors and taste sensations. This tea has a complexity that provides continuous nuances with every cup.

    Zhong Shu Hu oolong tea can be re-brewed several times while maintaining an excellent flavor. We recommend the Gong Fu method of preparation to bring out the best of this excellent tea.

    Shi Zuo Oolong Tea
    (9)
    Spring 2019. Alishan. Sweet, complex, excellent value.

    Spring 2019

    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.
