This famous oolong tea grows on Taiwan’s Tung Ting or ‘Ice Peak’ Mt. in the mist bound 'Deer Valley'. In this premium grade only the top two leaves are picked, by hand from the first spring growth as the buds just open into new leaves. While they are being made the bamboo baskets of fermenting leaves are said to exude a heavenly aroma on a par with roses, sandalwood and amber. Being a 'Jade' oolong the light fermentation must be carried out with great skill to capture the perfect taste. It often goes on late into the night. It has a bright, amber green infusion and beautiful aroma, ranging from lilac to milky butterscotch. The slightly darker roasting of this tea compared to the Evergreen option gives the infusion a sweet, fruity flavour with a lingering taste. One of the interesting ways careful processing can bring out desired characteristics from the same raw leaves. One of its many virtues is the feeling of purification felt when drinking it.
