High Mountain Alishan - Gao Shan Ali Shan - 高山阿里山

Description

Alishan is considered one of the best regions for Tea Growing in Taiwan. Many offers in the market makes it hard to distinguish between lower and higher altitude Teas which will have a big impact on it´s quality

Our Tea grows between 1500 – 1700mts above sea level, which makes it a great example of high quality high mountain tea.

We are offering two vintages, pretty similar between the two, perhaps the 2019 has a more obvious body than 2020 one.

 

Tasting Notes:

This Tea offers a unique delicate, floral and vegetal taste, rounded with a good almost creamy body. Its fragrance will remind you of Flowers (orchids perhaps) and even a hit of a milky fragrance.

 

Drinking Tips:

  • – A special Tea for your intimate Tea Ceremony.
  • – Pair with delicate foods.
  • – Try it in cold brew.
  • – We do not include the “grandpa” style brewing because prolonged infusion can lead to astringency, but give it a try adjusting water-leaves ratio.
  • – This tea can be aged, if you like to experiment.

 


Notes for Tea Nerds:

* All of our product pictures for the Tea soup features the middle infusion combined. (if the tea can be infused 8 times, then we combine 4th-5th to take the picture)

* All of our product pictures featured a bit more quantity of tea leaves infused, that’s because we have heavier palate and we are drinking the teas as we take the pictures 😉

* The number of infusions  for each product consider infusions with easily recognized taste, we do not count infusions that have its taste already fading away; said this each tea can be infused more times if desired. Also many of our teas can be boiled after being infused.
