Tea Story

Shimen used to be one of the major tea producing regions during the Japanese colonial period. These days, the tea from Shimen is extremely difficult to find due to limited production in the region. However, the family farmers in Shimen, Taiwan continue the legacy and commitment that have been passed down through generations. This dedication is reflected in the tea.


The tea is roasted after the first part of the process, which is similar to that of green oolong. It releases a very smooth burnt scent from roasting, which makes it easily approachable.

Tea Hunter's Comment

It has a unique fresh scent and dense flavors at the same time. Compared to the winter version of the tea, it tastes rather sophisticated.ted.
