About Graceful Hill, Milk Oolong
Graceful Hill, or milk oolong, is a Taiwanese light-bodied oolong tea that comes from Yilan County, the northeastern part of the Taiwan Island.
Most tea produced in Yilan is consumed locally among the villages, making this tea a rare find.
Graceful Hill oolong is made from Jinxuan cultivar, known for producing teas that are scented with fresh-cut butter. As a result, this varietal is also known as milk oolong.
The infusion is refined and soft, giving off a bouquet of wildflowers and tropical mountain ferns. The texture is pure and elegant finishing with hints of nutty almonds.
