From Nuvola Tea

Grown at a height of 1800 – 2600 meters above sea level, Lishan Oolong Tea fully captures the essence of the pristine forest in the high mountains of Taiwan. Its soft and supply tea leaves release a floral and fruity aroma of the forest, and its delightfully sweet flavour and delicately smooth body is definitely an invigorating treat to the body.

The first time I tried this sample from Nuvola Tea, I made a few mistakes. I tried it when I was really on a more green oolong kick (I really prefer greener oolongs, to be honest). I made it for a one time steep. I really just wasn’t catering to the tea itself. I was pretty meh on it, and decided not to leave a tasting note, since I thought I should give it another try later down the line.

So here I am, craving a slightly darker oolong. And I have it.

The dry leaves are wonderfully elegant. In the first 30 second steep, they barely unfurl at all. This demonstrates that they were lovingly rolled. Over the next few, they slowly reveal their true beauty.

There is definitely a floral aroma coming from this tea. The smell sort of calls to mind a forest right at the brink of fall. Each steep makes this aroma slide a little closer to fruity.

I was kind of surprised to find that there was a good bit of smokey flavor under all of the floral tones. It’s a good surprise, though. It complements very well. It definitely reminds me of fall, when you take sweet flavors out of their natural elements, and introduce them to spices and such.

Altogether, I enjoyed this tea a lot more the second time around. I will probably order a batch to have when I’m wanting an oolong that tastes more like…well, oolong!

I don’t know much about oolongs I admit. Can you explain the difference between green oolongs and uh… non green ones? They all taste very similar to me..

Green oolongs are lower oxidized. They are more vegetal, less fruity, more floral. I’d say in general, they’re ligher.The focus is on long lasting flavor and aftertaste. Dark oolongs have been subject to high levels of oxidation. They tend towards being more full bodied, more fruity, and sometimes slightly smokey. The flavor is full and strong but does not leave much aftertaste.

Honestly I find oolongs to be so intimidating because there are so many different flavors out there.

isn’t this Li Shan of the modern green style?
