Varietal品種：Green Heart Oolong 青心烏龍
Location: 300 meters from the Taiwan Yushan National Park range. This tea area is located amongst the conifer forests. The cool temperate mountain is shrouded in mist. This mist keeps the humidity high and reduces the time the tea trees have under the sun. This area has a very low tea yield because of its location.
Features: The fragrance of the tea gardens among the forests is fresh air like no other. The high mountain air mixed in with the tea gives a crisp preview to what your cup of tea may taste like.
Our tea is hand harvested and processed. This ensures complete control and care over every leaf.
(It is cold up on the mountain. Heat is used to raise the temperature of the indoor withering room to help facilitate proper oxidation of the tea leaves. )
To stop oxidation, the leaves are heated in the tumbling machines.
After the leaves come out of the tumbler, they are ready to be rolled and dried.
The leaves get passed through the drying machine. Like a giant toaster oven, the leaves move slowly along a conveyer belt under consistent heat.
After the first pass through the drying machine, the leaves are then shaped by kneading and twisting.
The leaves then get rolled into balls of cloth, which compresses the leaves and helps to maintain the balled oolong shape.
Ball shaped oolong leaves, ready to be steeped and enjoyed.
Aroma: the traditional process can bring out many unique notes from within the leaf. A complex range of juniper wood, dark wood, or sweet fruity floral orchids can be detected.
