Main region
This oolong is a real pearl of Taiwanese tea production. Named after the mountain in which the tea plantations are located, it is one of the top five teas in Taiwan. Taiwanese teas are one of the most high-mountainous in the world, as in some places tea bushes grow at an altitude of more than 1,500 meters. This could not but affect the taste of the drink - due to the unique climatic conditions it is very soft and fragrant.
For the production of this tea flushes are picked, they include a bud, three leaves and a stem. The presence of cuttings in the composition gives to the ready-made beverage a more vivid aroma. Tea leaves are harvested several times a year - according to the seasons. Depending on the time of picking, the altitude on which the tea plantations are located varies: in winter, for example, high-altitude plantations are more likely to rest, as the vegetation slows down.
