We met Mr. Chang, a Taiwanese veteran of tea production, during our summer trip to Taiwan. The eponymous Li Shan ("Pear Mountain") range of Nantou produces some of the most beautiful examples of high mountain oolongs in the world. This winter harvest stems from the Long Fang Xia region of the range—home steep, unforgiving terrain. A north-facing slope, coupled with dynamic temperature ranges (high elevation, island microclimate, tropical latitude) creates unparalleled sweetness amongst Li Shan harvests.
