From Red Blossom Tea Company

Peaking at 2200 meters above sea level, Lishan is the third highest mountain amongst the 12 that make up the Lishan Range. The tea garden from which this tea is harvested lies at approximately 2000 meters (6500 feet) above sea level, an elevation that yields temperate weather in the summer and light snow fall in the winter.

At this elevation, the tea plants are exposed to strong sunshine only in the morning before they are quickly enshrouded in mist. This short sun exposure allows the leaves to produce intense flavor compounds, but tempers the bitterness that can result from over-exposure. The cooler temperature also retards the plant’s metabolism, enabling the leaves to retain and store more flavor compounds.

This tea was hand-picked in mid-May 2016. Unstable weather significantly lowered yields this year, but what was produced is surprisingly delicious and complex, a testament to the skill of the tea maker. In his capable hands, we have yet another exceptionally wonderful tea this year.

Initial infusions yield a tea that is smooth and sweet with a hint of sugarcane and tropical fruits. Longer infusions yield intense floral and citrus notes over a viscous foundation of butter cream that seems to cling to our palates.

Either 2017 or 2018 Spring Harvest; not totally sure.

Drank this one Grandpa style yesterday all throughout my lunch break and then for a few hours afterwards as I did some data entry type stuff…

This was amazing! Incredibly fresh tasting, with a beautiful body to the flavour and very creamy, silky mouthfeel. The predominant flavour was this sort of fresh/fragrant mix of florals that evoked this sort of “Spring time flowers in bloom” imagery for me; osmanthus/magnolia/lilac/etc. Also some creaminess in terms of flavour as well and then a tinge of sweet nutty notes (almond/marzipan-ish) in the finish. Just very rich, in a Spring-y kind of way.

Gorgeous leaf too! Giant, full leaves in a rich emerald colour. Kind of in love with this one, not gonna lie!

Sounds utterly delicious.
