About High Mountain Oolong

High mountain oolong is a broad category of oolong teas, grown at a high altitude. Usually the term is used only to refer to oolongs from Taiwan. There is no absolute cutoff as to what elevation qualifies a tea as a high mountain oolong, and these teas can be grown across a wide range of elevations.

High mountain oolongs can be very diverse, with varying levels of oxidation, ranging from very green teas to very dark, and also varying levels of roasting.

Ali Shan (阿里山) Oolong, grown near mount Ali in Chiayi county, Taiwan, is one well-known type of high mountain oolong. According to Ten Ren Tea, Ali Shan oolong is among the newest of high-mountain oolong varieties, having been developed around 1999.[1]
