While Taiwan is — for good reason — known primarily for its superlative high mountain oolongs like our Li Shan, there are also many excellent oolongs produced at lower altitudes. These lower priced teas are wonderful, in part because they make one of the world’s greatest genres of teas available to a greater number of people. This particular tea is a great example of this. Even though it is grown at medium altitude, Nantou County, the landlocked region of highlands and foothills it derives from, still provides ideal growing conditions and a tea-making tradition that descends directly from Fujian Province in China, the origin of oolong as a style. This “milky” oolong (a name that derives from its cultivar, Jin Xuan) is delicious, balanced, and refreshing. Each one of the tiny pearls unfurls into three leaves. It’s rare to find a tea this great at this value, and we are proud to get to offer it at such an accessible price point.
