Alishan (Ali Shan) mountain is the largest mountain range in Taiwan, it consists of 18 mountains. This tea grows on the high mountain area - Mountain Ali. Tea grows on the height 500-1500 m, and together with unique climate this gives to the tea very soft and sweet taste.
Tea bushes grow on high-mountain plantations in the ecologically clean environment. Tea is harvested several times a year, in spring and autumn. The raw stuff to produce this tea is freshly picked rich bud with 2 young leaves. After harvesting bud and leaves mash to raise a juice, and fermentation begins. Tea leaves are oxidized by the air. After that fermented tea is fried in boilers for some time. The combination of time and temperature of roasting is held every plantation in the strictest confidence. Modern technology of tea leaf rolling, and heat treatment can keep the high content of tannins and catechines.

This tea is bright-red, clear and lustrous. Aroma is very rich and special, with honey and fruity notes and spice bitter. This tea is perfect for special occasions.
We recommend glass or porcelain pot. You can also use clay pot, but check that before no stronger teas were brewing there (for example red tea).
The temperature of water used for making black tea is lower. We recommend to use water about 80-85°C (175-185°F).
Use approximate 3 grams of tea leaves for 250 ml of water. It requires a longer brewing time than most of other Taiwan teas. 3-5 minutes is recommended and then increase steeping time for every next brewing. Same amount of tea can be prepared for several times.
This is one of the traditional ways of brewing. Depending on individual gustatory preferences you can vary brewing time from 35s to 5 minutes.
You can also use Chinese traditional way of brewing - spilling, using Gaiwan and brew for 3-5 second each time.
Please note, that it is natural tea with high content of active elements, including caffeine, and minerals and some unusual feelings could appear. In that case we recommend decrease quantity of dry leaves and brewing time.
