This orange-amber red oolong is for all kinds of tea drinkers, including beginners. The subtle sweet but robust dried fruit flavour might be recognizable for those who are familiar with the British black tea. 

Unlike other teas, this high mountain red oolong Misty Prince does not acquire a bitterness in taste even after a long-brewing time. The high mountain red oolong from Alishan is the combination of high oxidation (like black tea) but light baking which will keep its characteristics.

Description

Taste Profile

Basic profile: Honey and candied fruit
Lingering note: the hint of blooming flowers.
Colour: Amber orange

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.
