From Red Blossom Tea Company

Our Spring 2009 high mountain oolong from Lishan, Taiwan needs no introduction. Amongst afficiandos of Formosa oolongs, the name Lishan is instantly recognized as exemplary of the highest quality tea.

At 2200 meters above sea level, Lishan is one of the highest peaks amongst the 12 that make up the Lishan Range. The combination of high elevation, a more northerly latitude and skilled craftsmanship produced a tea this spring with a rich sugar cane quality that yields a longer, more persistent finish.

I am so impressed, very very impressed with the Red Blossom Tea Company. I’m in town, visiting relatives, and forced them all to go to tea shops with me. We hiked up Grant street and found the pretty little shop. I mentioned to one of the shop clerks that I found out about them on Steepster. Another (whose name I later learned was Peter (?) mentioned that he’d read the review that Angrboda wrote about the Heritage Ainji. So I got to say – hey – that was me that sent it to her! Peter then let us try 3 or 4 of their oolong teas. And I just have to say, he was wonderful. He really took time to talk to us about the teas and explain a little bit of why they were like they were. (elevation, etc) And they were understaffed, it being the day after Christmas. So I was extra impressed with his time, attention, and care.

This was my favorite of the teas that we tried today. It’s a greener oolong with very floral and bright notes at the start, moving to a creamy and slightly astringent finish at the end. I splurged and got 2 oz of it for special occasions. Lovely brew, great company.

That is too cool! :)

ZOMG I’M FAMOUS! :D If I ever in my life manage to suck up the courage (and the funds) to travel as far away from home as America, you have to take me there. :)

So freakin’ good. This was a sample – on session’s worth. 2 mins at 195. Lovely and fresh with a taste a bit like the faint aftertaste of cane syrup. I’m a fan.
Second steep is very buttery and creamy. OMG, so good.
