“Bought this recently when Tea Ave was having a sale. I generally like floral, green oolongs. This one was quite nice. It was somewhat vegetal and had notes of sweet grass to it. It was very good. I...” Read full tasting note

Description

One of our personal favorites, Lishan Oolong is revered among oolong drinkers for its smooth, full-bodied taste. One of Taiwan’s highest mountain teas, our version hails from the beautiful Lishan Mountains in the central mountain region of Taiwan, making it one of the very best high mountain oolong teas in the world.

Our Lishan Oolong is clean-tasting and vegetal, with a floral taste and aroma found naturally in the tea leaves themselves (a gift from the mountains, we like to think). Fruity notes are complemented by the tea’s smooth, buttery mouthful. Because it’s unroasted, Lishan Oolong is both full-bodied and delicate. Consider it a delicious contradiction.

Tea leaves are bright green and come curled into balls.
