I’ve had this tea for just about a year now (ordered the sample packages from Naivetea’s black friday sale last year), and have sinced discovered that although I enjoy taiwanese high-mountain oolongs, they just don’t excite me that much. I decided today that I wanted to use up the rest of my sample, which probably had between 5 and 3 grams (a bit more than one tablespoon) left in it. It was more than I usually steep “western style” in my 12oz mug, but I decided to throw it in there and give it a 1 minute steep for the heck of it.

And I’m pretty pleased with the results! It smells lovely, all buttery and floral. I was feeling a bit meh about finishing up the rest of this tea, but it has reminded me that I do enjoy drinking these teas, even if they’re not among my faves.

This is really a wonderful A Li Shan in my opinion…

It’s a bit floral-y but also very buttery, exceptionally creamy, smooth, rich. One taste of this and my mouth feels like it’s on vacation. I’m picking up some other things too, like a slight mango and perhaps a bit of vanilla. Not as light as some other A Li Shans I’ve had.

I seem to like this the best when it’s steeped at around 180F for 2 minutes but I would like to do some gong fu sessions with my remaining sample. If you’re looking for a good A Li Shan you might try this one. I would certainly buy this again. :)
