Ali Shan

Product code: CSTW-1

From Ali Mountain on the island of Taiwan, this high altitude wulong tea is one of our classics. We have been lucky to enjoy teas created by Mr. Chen's expertise for several years.

Offering all the typical aromatic trademarks of Gao Shan Cha (high mountain tea) with its softer leaves, it gives off fine vegetal and fruity notes (coconut, exotic fruits) when infused, while developing a delicious vanilla and fresh pastry aspects.

Tasty and persistent.
