About High Mountain Tea

Taiwanese high mountain tea is a type of premium tea grown in the high altitude mountainous regions of Taiwan, typically at an elevation of over 1,000 meters (3,280 feet). The tea leaves are grown in a cool, misty climate, and are carefully harvested and processed to create a distinctive flavor and aroma.

The most famous types of Taiwanese high mountain tea are oolong teas, which are partially oxidized and have a complex and layered flavor profile. Some of the most popular varieties include Alishan, Lishan, and Shanlinxi, each with their own unique taste and aroma.

Taiwanese high mountain tea is highly prized for its quality and unique characteristics, and is often considered one of the finest teas in the world. It is typically more expensive than other types of tea due to the high altitude growing conditions and the labor-intensive harvesting and processing methods involved in its production.
