By supporting this garden we are hoping to show that effective organic and regenerative growing practices can be just as lucrative as conventional farming and perhaps change the minds of some farmers in the area.
This tea is made with material from early summer and is oxidized to about 80% before going through most of the processing of making oolong tea. What results is a dark oolong with a hint of black tea maltiness and a dominant deep red floral version of the flavor that has made Alishan so famous.
