From Mountain Tea

LiShan oolong has become the standard for which all other Formosan oolongs are compared. This late-April pluck yields a sumptuous brew that is rich with floral notes, butter cream, and cane sugar.

This particular crop of LiShan oolong steeps an amazingly flavorful and aromatic cup. LiShan is part of the Jade mountain range, where the highest mountains of Taiwan are found, and is home to some of Taiwan’s best oolong tea producers. The teas are grown enshrouded in mist and receive minimal sunshine. At night, temperatures can drop up to 30°F. These factors contribute to LiShan oolong’s unmatched natural sweetness and unparalleled richness of flavor and aroma.

First impression from a gongfu session with 190 degree water is awesome! Very floral flavors, with a delightfully sweet finish. This sweetness remains in the mouth for a couple minutes after drinking the tea, and is accompanied by a grassy taste in the mid-late steepings. I wish I had more practice with tasting as it would be neat to be able to pick out the different floral notes in the tea, as were noted on Mountain Tea’s website. Good body to it, especially in steeps 2 and 3, with an alluring crispness.

Yet another delightful tea from Mountain Tea Co! This one isn’t as quite floral as I expect LiShans to be, but it’s incredibly tasty. There are still a good deal of floral notes hiding out in there, but there is also a nice brothy character and a bit of cream. It’s more savory than I usually find these types, and I really enjoy it. I’ll definitely be trying the 2015 as soon as I create some more room in my cupboard.
