High Mountain(2000m) Black Tea

Lishan(Pear Mountain)

 

One of the rarest teas on the site, this 2000m elevation black tea is a very special tea. Tea material from that elevation is very rarely are made into black tea as the oolong tea made from the leaves is much more valuable to the grower. And there is much less of it. This farm has bucked that trend and used that material to create an amazingly soft and fruity black tea that changes the high floral notes of the Qinxin cultivar into rich ripe stone fruit notes through full oxidization. And the flavors last much longer than your average black tea. It comes at a price, but this tea is truly a treat.

**There is another rare aspect of this tea in regards to this site. It is not completely agrochemical free. While at the top of the growing area and surrounded on two sides by forest there has been some cross contamination from the bane of high mountain organic growers everywhere, damn cabbage. The range of chemicals found is very, very small and well within the 'safe' range but this tea is not entirely agrochemical free. If anyone wants more information please don't hesitate to get in touch!**

High Quality Taiwanese Black

This is what we've come to expect from MST- the best version of Taiwanese "X" tea.
Flavor-wise this is a characteristic Taiwanese Black tea (the standard one, that every Taiwanese vendor carries),
but extra clarity and depth make this an excellent tea.
The best of it's type that I've had
