Grown at an altitude of 1,100 meters in Central Taiwan. In making Strong Fire oolong only mature, hardy leaves are plucked. They are withered in the sun for a few hours to reduce moisture. Traditional rolling techniques (at least 13 different motions) are applied in conjunction with light roasting to achieve the optimum shape and flavor. The tea is aged and finally roasted at high temperature. The brew has a fullbodied texture with a toasty aroma and a bitter-sweet chocolate flavor.
