***NEWLY in stock, our fresh SPRING 2017. Exquisite! Very limited.***

Grown at 1600-1700 meters, this tea is one of the most sought after oolongs in all of Taiwan and this is a really special batch.

Extremely floral fragrant, buttery, and a looooooong sweet finish. Holds up well to several steepings. Just an A++ oolong. Produced from a chin xin oolong cultivar.

One of our Artisan Reserve oolong teas, a line of small batch handmade teas from a craft handed down over generations. Hand selected for having all the hallmark qualities of the highest grades with notable personality accents.

    This was indeed "floral, lingering, complex, fruity." Nice for steeping again and again.

    I agree with all the other reviewers... Whenever I drink this oolong, I certainly feel as if I'm sitting on a mountain in Taiwan, enjoying the peaceful scenery. Such a beautiful tea that can steep over and over again. I highly recommend it!

    I simply love this takes me to a remote Taiwanese mountina wherever I am. Exotic yet serene.

    Simply stunning...transports me to a mountain in China. You can't steep it wrongly, it's so forgiving, loving.

    Ali shan holds a special place in the heart of all who drink Taiwanese tea. Surely one of the most rewarding and refreshing oolong teas with that distinct high mountain aroma and flavor that has to be experienced to understand. You can even put the already steeped leaves in an empty water bottle and fill the bottle with cool water. Put it in the fridge overnight and next morning you will have cold ali shan tea to drink. A great way to get more for your money and get the most out of this beautiful tea.

Water: 195°F | Leaves: 1.5 -2 teaspoons per 6 ounce cup | Infusion Time: 3-4 minutes

Basic Steeping Tips
- Use filtered or spring water, whenever possible
- Don’t over-boil water
- Remove leaves after recommended time (adjust to taste)
- If you want stronger tea, use more leaves instead of steeping for a longer time.
Leaves can be re-steeped 2-3 times resulting in various flavor differences. Don’t throw out those leaves until they have given it all up!
Polyphenol in oolong tea is effective in controlling weight. It activates the enzyme that is responsible for dissolving triglycerides. Studies have confirmed that a 2-3 cup per day intake of oolong tea contributes to enhancing the function of fat metabolism and controlling obesity.
