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.
