From teabento

We love all our Taiwan high mountain oolong teas, but this one from Fushou Peak is our absolute favourite! Grown at 2.200m in an extremely cold mountain climate, our Lucky Otter bears the typical characteristics of Li Shan Oolong: It has a captivating aroma – clean, fresh, exuberantly floral with a natural fruity scent. It tastes incredibly flavourful and mellow, with long-lasting sweetness in the mouth and an amazing degree of balance and restrain.

This was a lovely oolong. The first steep was a bit buttery vegetables. After that it was mostly variations of vegetables. So it was a very good tea just not something I would get again for myself as there are other Tea Bento teas I prefer a lot more.

A big thank you to teabento for the sample pack! I will do my best to be unbiased and thorough.

Sweetly vegetal on the nose with just a hint of nuttiness. A sweet and delightfully floral, gently fruity oolong with a well balanced creaminess and ever so slight toastiness. An all around good oolong, particularly if you like your oolong heavier on the floral and lighter on the cream.

It’s been unseasonably hot where I live, so I haven’t been drinking too much tea lately. However, I’ve tried the last of my Teabento samples, Lucky Otter, both gongfu and Western style. (The power went out during my last session yesterday, which deleted my review.)

This Li Shan is sweet, floral, and fruity. In Western style brewing, it has a dried fruit quality similar to cranberries, while gongfu brings out tropical notes like passion fruit and papaya. The floral quality, which the website describes as orchids, balances out this fruitiness nicely. In both brewing styles, there’s virtually no astringency and an underlying vegetal character that gets stronger as the sessions progress.

This is a lovely oolong and I’m grateful to Teabento for the sample.

Beautiful florals, creamy, and fruity—this is a great oolong. I think it’s my first Li Shan, which I’ve read some fantastic reviews on in general. The scent of the brewed tea is intoxicating.

Thanks, Teabento! :)
