Nanhu Mountain Winter Oolong

The sister tea to the famous Nanhu Mountain Eastern Beauty, this tea is made from the same material as that tea, but classically formed into a high mountain oolong. And it is one special oolong! It is also produced in a micro batch way. We only have 1200g on offer.

Grown at 1400m above sea level at a very new tea-growing area called Nanhu Dashan in North Central Taiwan, this tea is a wonderful example of at granite terroir. The minerality of the brew is strong and unmistakable. Extremely rare in a Taiwanese tea.

The experience of this tea is one of a full, rich vegetal upfront, with the drying minerality of the granite terroir in full force. Around the mid mouth, the flavor changes to a strong floral/stone fruit-like sweetness that lingers in the aftertaste for a very, very long time. It is a complex, and gorgeous, aftertaste that lasts through many steeps.  Masterfully crafted by a gifted Tea Master, we are proud to support people that make teas such as this one.

**This is not a beginners tea. The flavors are complex and fascinating, but not the most accessible. Expert brewing required :)
