051 / Graceful Hill
Graceful Hill came from Yilan County, northeastern part of the island. The lowland region is not one with famous tea varietals known to the world. Most Yilan produced tea is consumed locally amongst villages, causing it to be rare and unique. Dongshan tea gardens are situated by the Pacific coast amongst small rolling hills, which brings plenty of rainfall and moisture. The mild temperature and frequent fogs nurture the tea leaves making them soft and tender.
Graceful hill oolong is made from Jinxuan cultivar, known for producing teas that's scented with fresh cut butter. The infusion is refined and soft, giving off bouquet of wild flowers and tropical mountain fern. The texture is pure and elegant finishing with hints of nutty almonds. It is especially soothing on a summer night.
