Ali Shan Oolong Tea
Ali Shan is the oolong family of teas cultivated high in the mountains of central Taiwan. Due to the high elevations at which Ali Shan is grown, the leaves of this tea are much heartier than many others and possess a higher concentration of the elements that produce flavor. Ali Shan offers a subtly sweet, yet intricate flavor that includes touches of flowers and fruits combined with a light creaminess. At Sencha Tea Bar, we offer Ali Shan Oolong Tea to satisfy your sophisticated tastes in tea.
The Making of Ali Shan Oolong Tea
Ali Shan Tea leaves are collected by hand and then placed onto a large mat. Then, the leaves are bruised by lightly rolling them. The rolling breaks down the cell tissues and the process of oxidation. Once this is done, they are allowed to sit for eight hours. Finally, the leaves are roasted which halts the oxidation process which would otherwise turn the leaves into black tea. In addition, the roasting process promotes caramelization of the leaves giving them hints of caramel flavor. The oxidation of oolong tea usually reaches about 40%, giving the tea a light to medium color.

The tea gave me energy and that was nice, however, I wasn't a big fan of it's taste. I may not be an Oolong fan.
I really have been enjoying the tea. Very good taste. However, I'd really appreciate knowing the weight of the packet of tea, and also a list of ingredients. So keep making great tea and include a bit more info when you send it out.
Excellent customer service...
Wonderful tasting oolong tea. Sweat they way it’s supposed to be.
