As a tea lover, I dream of tasting all kinds of good teas from all over the world. If you're like me, then make sure to visit the famous Maliandao Tea Street, the largest collection of tea vendors in northern China.
A few days ago, on the basement floor of Beijing International Tea Centre, I found a franchise selling quality Taiwan tea. The shop is called "Taiwan Best Tea".
The tea comes from four major tea plantations in Taiwan's Grand Ali Mountain Tea Planting Area. These mountains over 7,000 feet above sea-level, and covered by clouds and mists. The name "Taiwan High Mountain Tea¡¯ really describes the teas in the area. The entire process of gathering leave is by hand, 100% natural.
Taiwan High Mountain Tea belongs to the Oolong tea group, which is somewhere between green tea and black tea. The soup is emerald green, tastes aromatic, and has a long, subtle sweet after-taste. If you sip carefully, you should feel carefree and happy.
Each tea package contains two 150g bags. Prices vary from RMB 880 for "top-quality 888", RMB 680 for the "special grade 878", and RMB 480 for "preferred 868". Gift boxes are available upon request.
