Intermediate fermentation: 30-40%.
This tea which grows on the eponymous mountain, means "Icy peak". It is considered by tea lovers to be one of Taiwan's best. The leaf, which is pearly and moderately fermented, gives the liqueur a particular yellow-orange colour that is unique in the world of tea. Its scent is both silky and lively, its taste recalls the flowery side of the little fermented Wu Long (oolong) teas and also that of the fruitier, woodier Fancy teas. An exceptional crop.
