The two words ”Gao Shan” means: ”High Mountain”. A rare, superior grade Oolong, grown at the altitude of 1000m above sea level. The climate is ideal for growing tea because the temperature is low, the air is clean and the mountains are misty. It is produced in very small quantities as the space for growing the tea trees is limited and it takes about 36 to 40 hours to process a batch of gaoshan tea.
The leaves are rolled into deep green, crinkly pellets the size of garden peas. The liquor (infusion) is a bright golden-yellow with a flavour and aroma reminiscent of peaches, apricots and a hint of honey.
