Why from Ali Mountain?

The weather is the first important factor-  It’s cold and wet throughout the year but has enough sunlight which provides the perfect tea growing condition. The fluctuated temperature between day and night slows down the growth rate but accumulates more flavor in the tea plants. The tea leaves turn out to be tender and aromatic than those from low elevation (400-800m).

The Teamaker

This tea is grown in the ecological garden that the owner also raises many deer, chicken and rabbits on his farm. He reuses the compost and peanut shell as the organic fertilizers. Mr. Zhang is our family friend and his hospitality for the community is well-known in Alishan.

Basic profile: Flower and light grassy note.

Lingering note: light orchid hint in the end.

Colour: Fresh golden green

Rebrew up to 8 times per 100 to 120 ml of hot water (95-90) depends on your preference of the strength. You only need to use one to 2 teaspoons (3 grams) for each brewing. 

Chinese method (Kong-fu cha)

(You can read our explicit Brewing Guide if you are not sure about the method.)

*Water quality is critical for the taste of tea. We highly recommend you use filtered water or Alkaline water (ph level >8). Read this article to know some benefits of using alkaline water on tea.
