While Lishan is often thought of as a single growing area, that couldn't be farther from the truth. In reality, Lishan is a large mountain with several distinct growing areas - each of which grow tea with distinctly different tastes. In this experience we present four of the most famous terroirs of Lishan Mountain.
Dayuling High Mountain Oolong - At 2500m, Dayuling is the highest tea growing region in Taiwan. With intense florality and notes of white sugar, petrichor, and vegetal, this is a truly unique high mountain tea.
Lishan Lightly Roasted Oolong - Our Lishan Light Roast comes from a 2000m garden located in the Heping District of Lishan Mountain. Heping is famous for producing some of the best high mountain tea in Taiwan. This tea underwent a light round of traditional charcoal roasting to impart notes of cream, dried longan, and roasted nuts.
Qilai Shan High Mountain Oolong - Qilai Shan is a new, and relatively unknown, area for growing high mountain tea. Our Qilai Shan comes from a garden located at 1800m, and has notes of sweetened mung bean paste, vegetal, and high mountain forest.
Cui Feng Lightly Roasted Oolong - Located at 1700m, our Cui Feng Light Roast has notes of freshly cut grass, orchids, and fresh sugar cane.
