The Four Seasons tea comes from Nantou County, Taiwan. Mainly, Mingjian. Some farmers/producers pick their tea by hand, however, the bulk of Four Seasons is machine harvested.
Our Four Seasons oolong is grown at an elevation that is below 1,000 meters, so it would be considered low mountain tea. I personally think that shows in the flavor. I find high mountain teas have more of a lighter, delicate, and floral flavor/body. I also find that the opposite is true for our Four Seasons tea. It has a rich mineral sweetness and heavier floral body. The flavor is pretty bold.
