About Mount Ali
In the tea world, Mount Ali is a trade mark for high altitude tea plantation, ranges from 1,300 to 1,600. Tea plants here enjoy much cooler climate, hence with a slower and gentle growth, which tends to develop an unique light sweetness which the locals describe as a sugar cane taste.
About Our Dew Drop Oolong
The dew drop oolong we selected for you is handpicked above 1,500 meters altitude, has a light to medium oxidization, then roasted over low fire so as not to overkill a lot of the complex frontal notes. Despite the light processing, the body of the dew drop is rich, full, with a strong note of nori (Japanese dried seaweed), and of course, the signature alishan sweetness.
