Mt. Ali Oolong from Ali Shan area is one of the best and the most famous oolong from Taiwan.
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.
High mountain Oolongs from Ali Shan belongs to the group of Bao-zhong oolong.
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.
