Highland teas usually have a higher price due to the spatially limited amount of tea produced. Thanks to the special climatic conditions (lower temperatures, cleaner air, dense fogs), these teas are healthier (they can clearly be labeled organic), have a special aroma and taste – thinner, cleaner, stronger and the leaves are larger and stiffer than teas from the lower regions gardens. They oxidize relatively easily and heat treatment is minimal for most of them.
Tian Li Cha
“Heavenly pear” – that’s how the Taiwanese call this first-class tea. It is grown at an altitude of over 2000 m.a.s.l., which makes it one of the highest quality Taiwanese teas ever, and because of this it is often used as a gift in diplomatic negotiations.
