FINE TAIWAN TEA
Chinese people have been enjoying tea since the Shennong Emperor era (ancient Chinese folklore known as the god of medicine and agriculture). It has a history of 4500 years. Tea is now an essential drink in our lives. The area of Taiwan is about 36,000 square kilometers. The topography, soil, climate, latitude, etc., are all very favorable conditions for growing tea leaves. Various types of tea are also cultivated. Taiwan produces a wide variety of teas, including unfermented green tea, semi-fermented oolong tea, and fully fermented black tea, each with unique characteristics. First of all, it is a typical Taiwan high mountain tea. What is " high mountain tea"? Tea made from tea leaves grown at 1000m or higher above sea level is called "high mountain tea".
[Taiwan's top three high mountain teas]
Alishan High Mountain Oolong Tea is grown between 1,000-1,600m above sea level, and Shan Lin Xi High Mountain Oolong Tea is grown between 1,400-1,800 m. Finally, Lishan High Mountain Oolong Tea is cultivated in sky tea gardens between 2,000 and 2,600 m above sea level.
High mountain tea gardens are foggy, and the daylight hours are short. The shoots are soft, and the leaves are fleshy and contain a lot of pectin. The produced tea leaves have a condensed umami flavor, with little bitterness and a slight sweetness. These mountains face different directions, so each mountain has unique exposure to sun, humidity, and rainfall.

Tieguanyin tea is roasted repeatedly to bring out the aroma and aroma of ripe fruits. Wenshan Baozhong Tea has a savory taste and a refreshing orchid scent. Oriental Beauty Tea is unique to Taiwan.
