      Our Alishan High Mountain Oolong comes from Alishan mountain, probably the most famous tea growing region in all of Taiwan.  It's quite a magical place if you ask me and was the first Taiwanese High Mountain Oolong I ever had while living at the base of Alishan in Jiayi many years ago.  It was so amazing and my first step toward opening BTTC.  

      This tea has a well-recognized name so it's often faked all over Asia and probably here as well.  Interestingly, Chinese tea merchants will often buy a farmers entire crop in advance in cash to offer it for sale in China documenting the entire process so they can authenticate the tea to their buyers.

      I spent quite a lot of time there this Summer meeting with Alishan farmers. Unexpectedly one night a Giant White-Faced Flying Squirrel landed right in front of me, but that's another story. Amazing.  

      We work directly with two Alishan farmers and indirectly with a third who is an amazing roaster.  At present we are offering tea from a farm north of the Shi Zhuo Ecological Conservation area.  A cool and moist climate here produces this wonderful tea.  Like it's counterpart from Shan lin xi (our Misty Mountain Tea), you can drink this tea for hours and not get tired of it. It’s clean, refreshing and invigorating.

      Larger sizes will be packed in 2 oz. sizes unless specifically requested otherwise.  In other words, an 8 oz. order will come in 4 individually vacuum packed bags.
