Chi Lai Mountain Oolong

(Spring 2024)

The High Mountains of Taiwan have many growing regions and this one is relatively new. Perched on the west facing side of the Chi Lai Mountain Range, this terroir is slightly different than its other high mountain oolong cousins. Stronger and thicker on the palate than many other terroirs with a noticeably sweet/sour tartness to the fruit flavor of the mid mouth, it is a fun variant in the Taiwanese high mountain oolong flavor palate.

We have found a new, better and cleaner garden in this region for the 2024 offering of this tea and we are excited to share it. This tea is made from the same plants as the increasingly legendary Chi Lai High Mountain Black so if you are a fan of that tea, this one will be a lot of fun to try!

Lovely High Mt. Flavor!

I found this tea to be extremely close in flavor and cleaness to the 2019 spring Pear Mt. oolong. I experienced similar floral sweet bursts on the palette that lingered. If you're looking for a beautiful high mt. oolong at a slightly lower price then this one will not disappoint!
