Terroir: MiaoLi is one of the most well-known Oriental Beauty growing areas in Taiwan. Located at altitude of 400m, tea trees grow on leeward side of hills with both high humidity and lots of sunlight which create ideal environment for attracting green leafhopper (Jacobiasca formosana). The bites of leafhoppers start the oxidation on the leaves which produce distinctive fruity and honey flavour.
