Spring 2020 in stock and this tea is one of the best 'bang-for-your-buck' teas we have on the site this year. Smooth, creamy and fresh with a wonderful sweet floral aftertaste, this tea is a winner for those new to teas and veterans of Spring Alishan Oolongs alike. We wanted to get more of this tea but it was already sold out so this batch most likely won't last all the way till next spring!
This tea is conventionally grown but not by choice. Surrounded by other conventional gardens there is little chance of organic certification for this patch of tea. The producer of this tea makes very minimal use of agrochemicals however, and we hope that he can can convince his neighbors to do the same!
