This white tea comes from an old cultivar planted years ago in the mountains around Gaoxiong. Some of the trees date back 100years, on average around 20-30 years though. The trees are standing completely left alone within a forest in Bao Mountain at around 1200m. No pesticides, no fertilizer, no pruning. The leaves from these trees are harvested by the owners – aborignal Bunung people. Then Mr. Liu is makeing this very unique and natural product to White tea similar to Bai Mu Dan style.
Good for drinking and storing. The tea was harvested early October 2018 and is now being processed to white tea by Mr. Liu’s father. The tea coop is working on a very small scale together with the local aborignals. What we found facinating is, how much they are commited to make something next to the Taiwanese mainstream of perfect rolled Oolong tea.
