High Mountain Alishan Shijhou Jin Xuan milk oolong comes from Ali Mountain Area, from Shihjhuo township (石棹). Shihjhuo is a small village on the top of Ali Mountain (altitude 1300m). It is the best Alishan Oolong for special occasions.

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. 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 for the production of 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 is very special and limited kind of milk oolong. The uniqueness of milk oolong is that it has acquired "milky" flavor is not due to a chemical but due to natural processes.

Milk oolong from Ali Shan has unique mountain flavor and taste is pretty and reach of flowers and plants aroma.

Leaves: delicately hand-rolled into small, green-yellow coloured balls

Taste

Pleasing, smooth milk flavor with a buttery aftertaste.

Brewing

You can use any kind of tea pot, but clay tea pot suits much better.

Warm up the tea pot with the boiling water, put 2-5 grams of tea, and pour small amount of the boiling water into the tea and pour out, then pour 225-250 ml of boiling water and cover tea pot for three minutes before serving.

Boiling temperature – 90-95°C (195-205°F).

You can use this amount of tea 3 to 4 times.

The tea leaves come unrolled for full flavor.

Additional information

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.

It is a tea worth trying. It has a distinctive, but not obtrusive milky flavor, offering a unique taste experience. Its creamy texture and subtle floral aroma make it stand out.
