Dance with the Immortals is an ace example of a light to mid roast Taiwanese High Mountain Oolong. The feel and complexity of flavours are full mouthed, fresh, and smooth. The aroma is floral and elevating. This tea comes from a small farm run by the Su Family. A husband and wife team who in 2004 followed their dream to transform their virgin high mountain bamboo forest into a tea garden. This tea has been produced using only natural fertilizers, zero weed killers, and only a minimal amount of soluble pesticides, which they do not administer for at least 3 weeks prior to harvest.
