Oriental Beauty Like We Have Never Seen - High Mountain Bai Hao

Oriental Beauty Like We Have Never Seen - High Mountain Bai Hao

This is Mr. Gao's High Mountain Bai Hao (Oriental Beauty). His Bai Hao tea garden is located at an elevation of around 1,600 m (5,250 ft).

The trees in the garden are only for Oriental Beauty, and are picked only once a year. He then lets the trees rest for the remainder of the year. Tea trees, like people, could get exhausted if they are overworked. Mr. Gao thinks of his trees as people, so he does not overburden them.

Introducing Snow Oolong from La La Land (Shan)

I would like to introduce a unique tea, La La Shan Oolong, which is the first Daurim tea of 2018 and came here after going through the snow in Taiwan. La La Shan is a mountain in the southeastern region of Taoyuan. The maximum elevation of the mountain is about 1,500m (4,900ft). The area is not well-known to the public yet, so the trees are in a great condition, and the farmers solely focus on making great teas. The leaves were harvested on January 3rd, 2018, which makes it a real winter tea. The tea exemplifies characteristics of winter teas,...
