Quick description:

Gaoshan tea (Chinese: 高山茶; pinyin: gāoshān chá) refers to Oolong tea grown in the alpine tea zones of Taiwan. It is grown at altitudes higher than 1000 meters above sea level, where the air is clear. Taiwan's unique island geography with high mountain ranges at its center, where there's high humidity and natural precipitation, makes it a most suitable environment for growing tea.
