I’m a big fan of Taiwanese high mountain oolongs, and this Li Shan from Camellia Sinensis is one of my personal favorites. While most high-mountain oolongs require a long infusion to draw out the subtle flavors, this Li Shan makes a hearty and fragrant cup in just over 1 min. when brewed gong fu style and rewards with several quality reinfusions. The aroma is like the first lilacs of spring and the taste is fruity and thirst quenching. A wonderful tea to celebrate the coming of the new spring!

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 1 min, 30 sec

I’ve had Li Shan Winter 2009 by Red Blossom Tea Co. and it really reminds me of some Japanese greens. I wanted to get the spring in shop but they were sold out.
