Chi Lai Shan High Mountain Oolong Tea (Taiwan)

$9.20

Our Chi Lai Mountain tea is the first of our two pinnacle Taiwanese high mountain teas that grace our 2015 tea catalogue. We our proud to be one of the first companies to make Chi Lai Mountain and Ho Huan Mountain teas available to markets outside of Taiwan. These teas are grown at extremely high elevations of 1800+ meters and come from Hualien County, and are exposed to radical growing conditions, which result in strong, bold flavours and aromas. With a very heavy and creamy mouth feeling and a thickness you can almost see in the tea soup, this Chi Lai mountain tea yields tasting notes of honey, and flowers, and has a very strong sweet returning aftertaste. This is an absolutely exquisite tea crafted with the utmost care and technical skill. This is a rare opportunity to try something really special. This tea is available in 8 gram single packs and a 150 gram full tin.
