Ali Shan Cha Wulong "Mimo"
This tea comes from a small ecological garden located at an altitude of 1,000m in the Ali Shan - or Ali Mountains - in the center of the island of Taiwan
This wulong is part of the large family of Taiwan mountain teas known as Gao Shan Cha. In her village, home to a large indigenous Tsou community, producer Silvia Vayiyana works on its Ali Shan Wulong "Mimo" tea (which is similar to a PDO) so that it improves with age having undergone a medium roast. "Mimo" simply means "to drink" in Tsou language. In cup, it develops a very aromatic fresh vegetal bouquet, exotic fruits with a woody background.
To understand what a more or less thorough roasting brings to this type of wulong, it is interesting to taste it together with the lighter roasted Ali Shan Cha Wulong "Anaiza".
