From What-Cha

A fantastic black tea from high up in Li Shan mountain, with a very smooth texture coupled with an incredible floral taste which lingers in the mouth.

The tea is quite light compared to typical black teas with a pleasant sweetness and not any malt or astringency.

A limited edition tea produced in very small quantities, I’ve ordered 1kg this year and probably will not be able to order any more until 2021 due to the limited seasonal nature.

Tasting Notes:
- Very smooth texture
- Complex taste which evolves
- Floral quality with notes of citrus, fruit and nut which develop with subsequent steeps

Harvest: Summer, July 2020

Origin: Cui Fong, Li Shan, Nantou, Taiwan
Altitude: 1600m

Cultivar: Qing Xin
Sourced: Direct from a Taiwanese wholesaler

Brewing Advice:
- Heat water to roughly 90°C/194°F
- Use 2-3 teaspoons per cup/small teapot
- Brew for 3-4 minutes

Packaging: Resealable ziplock bag

(Oops. removing and correcting a very complimentary note for a completely different tea!)



Tazo’s on my lap snoozing, so I can’t get up to check the bag…I did write this without the label under my eyes, so I could’ve crossed up the name. I’ll retract or correct soon :)


I want to leave some kind of proverb about lap-napping cats but I got nothin.

Thank you Alistair!!!

Love this so far. Definitely on the sweet side-more notes coming soon.


I’ve been eying this one. I look forward to your notes.

It’s top notch. It compares to some the Great’s on here.


That’s good to know. I’ve also been considering What-Cha’s regular Li Shan oolong.

The regular one is actually one of my favorites. The 2019 Lishan was a little green for me, but the notes still compare to more expensive ones-it’s personally one of the better bangs for my buck.
