High mountain tea (Template:Zh) refers to any tea grown in the alpine tea zones, higher than 1000m above sea level in Taiwan. One reason for such teas to be preferred is the belief that the air at this altitude is less polluted.

Taiwan's unique island geography - high mountain ranges at its center with high humidity and natural precipitation - makes it a most suitable environment for growing tea.

Tea cultivators choose the mountain seeking areas with "high energies"; areas with an appropriately high level of exposure to the sun, the moon, and the mountain climate, from which sources the grown tea adsorbs its energiesTemplate:Citation needed. This "energy" manifests itself through the aroma and flavor of the high mountain tea, which is appreciated with specialty, particularly porcelain, tea-drinking utensils.
