Why from Ali Mountain?
The weather- It's cold and wet though out the year which provides the perfect growing condition.
The fluctuated temperature between day and night slows down the growing rate but accumulates more flavour in the tea plants. The tea leaves turn out to be tender and aromatic makes the tea even more tasty and full of natural flavour.
What is Red Oolong?
Following the traditional tea making procedures, but the tea farmers developed new techniques of making oolong tea in Taiwan since 25 years ago.
The oxidation level is higher than the normal oolong tea that gives the amber-orange like colour like black tea. This honey-tasted drinking treat is from Taitung where is famous for Red Oolong which has received more than 50 awards since 1990.
The flavour will stay even in cold brew, actually, it’s suitable for cold brewing. The seemly black tea orange colour comes from the heavy fermentation, the medium roast gives this oolong tea the sweetness and the fruity fragrance. This amber colour and its sweet fragrance could sooth your pressure from work.
