Our Taiwan Native Mountain tea (Yuansheng shancha 台灣原生山茶) are made in the foggy hills of Nantou Taiwan. Using traditional cultivation techniques dating back from the 1700s. Because of the high altitude of this mountain range, our tea can offer a unique taste limited to this region due to limited sunlight hitting the leaves and altering the taste. Whole leaves of Taiwan native mountain tea is kept unbroken and in their original form without being broken. This way they have less surface area in comparison to tea leaves in bags enabling them to retain most of their fragrance and oils.
