The Alishan Oolong is a superior high mountain oolong tea from Taiwan This tea is grown on the Ali Mountain at the elevation of 1300 meters. It has become a highly regarded region due to its advantageous environment. The clouds and high altitude create a nutritious tea rich in chlorophyll and amino acids. Its natural quality of sweetness and complex flavor make it one of the best teas in Taiwan.
This tea was name Ju-Lu because of the Ju-Lu in Chinese literally meaning “dew” on the veins. The tea leaves are green half ball-shape and the color of tea is honey green.
This top-notch oolong is full of flavor with lots of tip throughout. The tea starts with a brisk flavor, then finishes with a long-lasting rich wild flower aroma. The taste and aroma shift while going down and linger for some time after. This is wonderfully smooth and complex with a robust taste.
