The Alishan Oolong tea growing areas are situated between 1,000m-2,300m (3281ft-7546ft) in attitude. The high mountain conditions offer plenty of fog and low temperatures, which are ideal for oolong tea, and the water used for irrigation is from pure mountain springs.
Mount Ali tea is characterized by its sweet fragrance with overtones of flowers and fruit. Four Season oolong tea (wu long tea) is a varietal grown in the Alishan (Mount Ali) tea region of Taiwan. Alishan is one of Taiwan's most famous tea areas. The rich soil combined with the daily fog produces ideal conditions for growing tea.
Four Season tea is a high-mountain (gao shan) tea which has been hand-picked and hand-processed by traditional methods. It is an excellent daily tea with a smooth sweet taste and pleasing color. Four Season tea is the best oolong available in this price range.
Dong Ding Ming Xiang Oolong
Varietal: Chin Shin (Green Heart - qing xin - 青心烏龍)
Origin: Dong Ding Mountain (凍頂山), Lugu Township, Nantou County, Taiwan
Elevation: 850m (2,800ft)
Dong Ding Ming Xiang Oolong tea is produced in the Dong Ding mountain area of Nantou county in Taiwan. Dong Ding is one of the most famous oolong tea producing regions in Taiwan. Its history stretches back to the 1860's when a Dong Ding native brought several tea plants from China back to Taiwan. Dong Ding mountain proved to have ideal climate and soil conditions for oolong tea cultivation.
The Dong Ding area was near the epicenter of the 1999 earthquake that devastated Taiwan. In the aftermath of the disaster many of the tea plantations were left unattended. When work resumed on them and the neglected wu long was picked and processed, it was found to have a deliciously sweet honey flavor. Investigation showed that the oolong tea gets its honey flavor from secretions left on it by cicadas. In order to encourage this special flavor, Dong Ding Ming Xiang wu long tea must be grown without the use of pesticides.
Taiwan Ming Xiang wu long has a distinctive sweet taste and aroma. It brews a dark color wu long tea that has a lingering sweetness that settles on the back of the tongue. Dong Ding Ming Xiang is truly one of the jewels of Taiwan wu long tea and is highly valued by oolong tea connoisseurs.
