Classic high-grown Taiwanese mountain Oolong. Li Shan (Pear Mountain) is one the highest tea-growing region in Taiwan with elevations of 1700m to 2600m. Li Shan’s moist, cool terroir produces teas of exceptional quality: this Li Shan is soft, floral and buttery.
Li Shan is similar in style and flavour to Ali Shan, although grown at higher altitudes. The dark tightly rolled leaves produce a lovely light yellow liquor that has notes of flowers and fruits - we tasted hints of peaches and lavender - with a superb rich, rounded buttery finish. There is no hint of bitterness or grassiness in this Li Shan, despite the relatively light oxidation.
