Thank you for this sample!

I quite enjoyed this one, and the orchid, peach and almond aroma are apt descriptions. I originally got the regular Alishan from this company since I already had the tea bagged version of the Alishan. This one worked gong fu or western, but I’ve had better luck gong fu using the recommended 40, 20, 30… and so on. It is fairly standard for good quality Ali Shan’s, but it’s slight nuttiness is better enhanced with its fruity edge and its floral and creamy almond quality. It’s still a little vegetal, but almond and orchid are the more prominent notes. I would recommend this one a little over the regular Alishan although they are extremely close in flavor. This one just has a little more zest, and I think it has a little more oxidation making it more rounded overall. I may raise the rating eventually, but it stands as something good for the price it costs.
