Country of Origin: Taiwan, Tungting Province
Packed in Canada
Grade: Ti Kuan Yin Formosa A
Attitude: 1000 3000 ft above sea level
Manufacture Type: Semi fermented, traditionally processed, small batch crafted, hand sorted

Cup Characteristics: Classic oolong. Tightly rolled leaves transition to delicate orchid and pear notes, haunting finish. Brew a pot and experience what some tasters call Champagne of Taiwan. The name Alishan itself derives from an old aboriginal word Jarissang. The Tsou Tribe, people who inhabited the mountainous region centuries ago, first discovered wild tea produced an elixir when boiled that had the ability to raise spirits and keep the mind. Today's Alishan teas are still produced according to the methods established by the early planters. Fresh leaf is hand plucked and immediately wilted in the sun for a period of time. Next, they are placed in baskets and shaken to bruise the leaves and release the enzymes that produce flavor. This is followed by a period of oxidization after which the leaves are laid out to dry and finally fired. The result is nothing short of a spectacular Oolong - an almost perfect example of the best the Alishan region has to offer.
Ingredients: Luxury Oolong tea. Infusion: Translucent and sparkling like diamonds.

Grade: Hand sorted white tips
Altitude: 5600 ft 6500 ft above sea level
Manufacture Type: Handcrafted

It is believed to be one of the rarest teas in the world only 600kg of it are made on an annual basis. This tea is made from only the choicest, silken and velvety white tips, flushed by highly specialized tea bushes in the Great Rift Valley's cool early mornings. The fresh leaf is hand plucked, hand rolled and dried naturally. The process is exceedingly laborious and even the most skilled tea artisan can produce only about 1kg per day. Cup Characteristics: Breathtaking flavor with notes of honey, roasted nuts and Madagascar vanilla. Note that Kenyan teas are all natural and almost organic by default: They are grown on estates, which do not use pesticides or herbicides because pests that typically damage tea crops are not found at their high altitudes. Instead, the estates use nitrogen (N) as a natural fertilizer making them almost organic by default. Ingredients: Luxury White Tea. Infusion: Light with African dawn gold notes.
