High mountain oolong teas are not only beloved for their cup characteristics but valued for how difficult they are to make – great attention to detail is given to picking only the freshest tea leaves and processing them with special care.
This premium grade oolong is a Taiwanese specialty, known for its complex aromas and deep flavor. Grown at elevations higher than 1,000 meters, this high-mountain oolong is processed into tightly-rolled “pearls”, which unfurl when brewed. Because this is a full-leaf tea, each infusion extracts as much flavor as possible from the leaves. Good for multiple brews, High Mountain Oolong is a superb tea for use in a gongfu tea ceremony.
