Graceful Hill came from Yilan County, the northeastern part of the island.
This lowland region is not one with famous tea varietals known to the world.
Most Yilan produced tea is consumed locally amongst villages, making it rare and unique.
Dongshan tea gardens are situated by the Pacific coast amongst small rolling hills, which brings plenty of rainfall and moisture. The mild temperature and frequent fogs nurture the tea leaves making them soft and tender.
Graceful Hill oolong is made from Jinxuan cultivar, known for producing teas that are scented with fresh-cut butter.
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. It is especially soothing on a summer night.
