From Té Company:

Graceful Hill came from Yilan County, northeastern part of the island. The lowland region is not one with famous tea varietals known to the world. Most Yilan produced tea is consumed locally amongst villages, causing it to be rare and unique. Dongshan tea gardens are situated by the Pacific coast amongst small rolling hills, which brings plenty of rainfall and moisture. The mild temperature and frequent fogs nurture the tea leaves making them soft and tender.
