The prestigious tea is grown in a fertile, virgin forest region in an environment that is completely free from harmful pollutants. The soil is natural & pesticide free. As it is grown at an elevation of more than 2500M, it is covered with a sea of cloud and fog daily, which moistens the leaf blades and creates a natural rich nourishment of trace elements. Because of the extremely cold mountain climate the tea growth is slow & therefore the plants mature slowly, causing the tea to be enriched with vitamins and contain a full sweet & fruity fragrant taste. This tea is harvested twice a year: May/June and in September/October. One of the finest quality and most expensive of all Taiwan’s famous high mountains ooloongs.
