Tea Story

We are proud to bring you one of the most famous oolong teas from Taiwan, Ali Shan High Mountain Oolong (Alishan Gaoshan wulong, 阿里山高山烏龍). It is delicious as it is majestic!

This tea is grown on the highest altitude of the mountain range, Mountain Ali, at the height of 1500m.

The mountain’s perfect climate for harvesting teas in the fresh springs and the frosty winter seasons helps grow fresh, quality leaves.

From this harvest, only the most tender leaves have been hand-picked and dried. 

These delicately tender leaves have been given a gentle roll, to preserve the full leaf appearance. 

 

                 

Formosan Farms’ Ali Shan tea farmer, Mr Chien, grew up on a 100-year old family tea farm. 

Once fully learning his family’s tea-farming methods, he began to integrate his own beliefs to tradition  – by playing soothing, classical music to his tea trees.

He is in the process of building an eco-friendly system on his land that plays 8-hour bursts of classical music; he believes the exposure to music will help his tea leaves flourish, in quality and taste.
