Mountain Tea began in 1977 with a small shop in Taipei, Taiwan, where we mastered brewing, tasting, and serving the perfect cup. Then, no longer satisfied with serving great tea, they sought to grow great tea. After searching everywhere for the best climate and soil conditions, in 1987 they planted our first trees in the Wushe mountains in Nantou county, Taiwan. Since then, Mountain Tea has expanded to two more tea gardens. All of their gardens are high elevation gardens.
Our oolongs are highly prized by tea connoisseurs. Our gardens' unique terroirs were chosen for their sharp differences between daytime and nighttime temperatures, allowing our tea to grow more slowly, thereby developing more aroma and sweetness; in addition, the abundant clouds and fog surrounding our mountains allows our tea to absorb more moisture. The result is award-winning tea.
Mountain Tea is dedicated to supplying the finest loose leaf oolong tea experience possible. Because we are also growers, we're able to inspect our teas at every stage and ensure only the best quality. We take pride in crafting our teas using time-honored methods and traditions in order to provide you with the sweetest, cleanest cup possible.
