Oolong Tea · low oxidation · medium roast

Mount Ali is a lightly roasted oolong tea from Ali Shan, one of the best-known mountains for tea production in Taiwan.

Unknown to most, it also houses the largest grove of red cypress trees over 2,000 years old.

This Taiwanese oolong tea takes after its senior cypress neighbor: he is immediately striking. Made with the beloved milk cultivar, the buttery aroma is reminiscent of French pastry. Taste buttery brioche, nougat, and roasted chestnuts.
