A.K.A: Li Shan Superior Oolong, 里山烏龍
About: Li Shan, which literally means “Pear Mountain” is a very popular summer resort area, known for its production of pears, apples, and of course especially known for their awesome High Mountain Oolong teas! At around 6000 feet in mountains, the high elevation proliferates the most ideal conditions for growing and producing exceptional Oolong teas. Our Li Shan Oolong is deeply floral and complex, with hints of pears, fruits, sugar cane, and of course it also has that very desirable sweet aftertaste that lingers in the back of your mouth.

Recently I went to the Aroma Tea Shop when they had their Living Social deal – I got a xiying teapot as well as this delightful oolong.

I haven’t been buying too many green oolongs lately; at one point I had way too many so I’ve been trying to cut down a bit on my purchasing.

I decided to treat myself to some of this today. When I had gone to the ship I was told it was a new fresh arrival. Steeped using gaiwan method for 30 seconds.

Steeps 1 & 2 (I often drink them together): this just smells so lovely, fresh and aromatic like a garden. The flavor is slightly buttery with a floral element and has a slight sweetness in the finish, what a treat. A nice gardenia aroma is coming from the wet leaves. This is simply divine.

Steeps 3 & 4 now I am picking up on the sugar cane element with a touch of fruitiness that reminds me of pineapple and pear. Still very rich with a lovely butteriness. Great for a relaxing afternoon tea tasting.

I am going to the Washington DC area for a trip starting tomorrow, if anyone knows of a tea place I should check out keep me posted!
