Alright, so I’m still sick so I’m not sure how well this will taste to me regardless. From what I can smell it smells slightly buttery with a little hint of wet grass on a warm summer morning. I kind of like this smell, it’s somewhat relaxing. Has kind of a heavy taste in the mouth and tastes kind of like butter salad. That sounds nasty to me but it really doesn’t taste that bad. There is also another taste in there but I can’t quit put my finger on it. I like it but I don’t love it, if only it felt lighter.
Formosa Ali Shan
Oolong tea from Taiwan. When Portuguese explorers 1st discovered Taiwan they gave it the name Formosa, or “Beautiful Island” The oolong teas grown here continue to be called by this name. The exquisite bouquet of Formosa Oolong teas is reguarded to be the finest in the world. This exeptional lightly oxidized tea comes from Taiwan’s Ali Mountain and compares favorably to the best Tung Tings. The aroma rising from the wet leaves is bright and brisk with incredible high notes that awaken the palate. The flavor of the warm, golden-green liquor is softly sweet and floral, lingering on the tongue like the sensory memory of lilac, lemongrass, and sunshine. 3g/8oz 185 degree F water for 3-5min. Good for multiple infusions.
