Alishan Milky Oolong

Category Oolong, Taiwanese, Tea Shop

This high mountain oolong was first discovered on Dobra Tea travels in the Spring of 2005. In the high mountain tea gardens, weather conditions offer plenty of fog and lower temperatures, which are ideal for producing the best oolong tea. The gardens are situated between 1000 and 2300 meters in attitude. Ali Shan oolong offers a sweet fragrance with overtones of flowers and fresh tropical fruit. Enjoy it as the sun is just peaking through the mountains on a fine summer morning.

Preparation

Put 5-7g of tea (a whole tea-scoop full) straight into the pot and pour in water taken off the boil two minutes beforehand (190-195 F). Brew 1½ minutes, then pour and serve. This tea will yield several more infusions, simply add 1 minute more each infusion and use water just off the boil.
