Ruan Zhi Oolong

Oolong #17 from Thailand

The cultivar was imported to Thailand in the 90s from the island of Taiwan, Alishan mountain. Under the auspices of King Rama IX, Thailand tea industry has taken on new dimensions.

Today, more than 5 mountain regions of the country are engaged in the cultivation and production of high-quality tea. Most of the products are exported. Taiwan ranks first among the exporters of Thai tea to its country. And all thanks to the fact that in the Kingdom are ideal conditions for the cultivation and production of Taiwan cultivars.

Our Ruan Zhi Oolong grows at an altitude of more than 1200 m above sea level and is produced according to the Taiwanese technology. As a raw material, use a hand-picked tea bud and 2-3 leaves.

Also from this variety are produced Dong Ding, Gui Fei, and Dongfang Meiren.
