- Region: Taitung County

- Availability: In Stock
Fulu oolong from Luye Township is named "Low-altitude champion tea", and grows on the southeastern coast of Taiwan, in the area which is quite isolated and protected from urban development. The region is rich in agriculture and scenic beauty offering the perfect environment for growing tea. Because spring is warmer on the eastern part of Taiwan than in the west, tea trees sprout earlier and the harvest season is also longer in winter. Comparing to other areas, tea farms in the eastern part of Taiwan can harvest two times more.
Leaves: delicately hand-rolled into small, green-brown colored balls.

Aroma: A sweet biscuit aroma of dried fruit, baked peach and toasted nuts.
