Backlog:

One day, I’ll be caught up … no matter what Sil says!

I love Li Shan and Ali Shan Oolong teas – they are my favorite types of Oolong tea (although there are a couple of other ones that come close.)

This is sweet, creamy and LUSH. Very smooth – no sharpness, very little astringency, and absolutely not bitter. The astringency is so barely there that if you’re just casually sipping, you won’t notice it … it’s only when I’m really focused on the nuances of this cup that I detect the slight hint of astringency.

I got 10 infusions out of this tea – and it was well worth that effort! Delicious!

A pastoral verdance and sprightly nectar meet in a tea that is sweet yet very refreshing and soft but not milky. Bery good.

This is a very pleasant oolong. It has a faint floral note and is very smooth, velvety. It is full of flavor and has a pronounced lingering sweetness that is very satisfying. I don’t know how I missed ordering it before, it is inexpensive for the quality that you get. It is the kind of tea that an oolong drinker will want to have around because it is consistently good.

I fell in love with this oolong in Paris and have been pursuing it ever since. Very light floral notes yield to a body that fills the mouth with a very creamy bloom. This is the first Li Shan I have tasted that had notes of jasmine on the 2nd-4th steeps. What a treat! Now comes the wonderful news, this tea is usually found at $12-15/oz. Life in Teacup brings it to you for half the price. Plus, the second and third steep only improve.
