High Mountain Oolong 2005 in Danger

Unusual snow this weekend on Taiwan's Central Mountains threaten this year’s spring harvest. It has already caused USD 200 million damages to mountain farmers (mostly tea producers).
The lower production yield will translate in higher prices. The question mark remains the impact on taste. I will keep you updated when the spring oolong hits the market in early May.
On the positive side, baozhong and low altitude oolong teas were not impacted.
