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.
Easily one of the most famous teas coming out of Taiwan, Bai Hao wulong carries out a very distinctive taste (akin to muscat grapes and spices) that is due to the intervention of a very specific leafhopper (Jacobiasca formosana).
This First Class, award-winning wulong is one of the last one hundred teas in its category from the 6000 lots presented this year at the Luku contest.
Over the years, wulongs from Dong Ding Mountain have made quite a name for themselves.
The expertise of Mr. Nen Yu is doubly honored here with this tasty cooking of Dong Ding.
From the famous mountain Dong Ding and cooked in the traditional way on wood charcoal, this tea has a nice mix of dark leaves.
Harvested in the vicinity of Dong Ding, this wulong tea benefits from the presence of Jacobiasca formosana in the tea gardens, a small leafhopper that sparks a hormonal reaction in the plant by biting its leaves.
This high mountain wulong tea was harvested from Mr. Chang Fu Chin’s garden, located on the slopes of the ‘Pear Mountain' (Li Shan) at over 2000 m.
Here's a nice find from Hugo that is sure to appeal! The leaves of this twisted black tea come from Ali Shan. As the name suggests (literally black tea with honey aroma), generous warm aromas of honey, ripe fruit and flowers emanate from the infusion. Its liquor has a sweetness of baked pastry with notes from biscuit to molasses and cinnamon. What a treat !
Planted in around 1875 in the Mucha region, this wulong is unique to the Taiwanese archipelago. M. Gao presents his marvellous version of the Iron Goddess of Mercy (Tie Guan Yin).
