From Whispering Pines Tea Company

This high mountain Taiwanese oolong is a beautiful example of how a tea can transport you to another place. With an aroma of summer forests and wildflowers and a rich, sweet body, Evergreen Oolong takes me home to the Michigan woodlands. The taste opens with daffodills, pine-infused honey, and cream, and shifts between that evergreen note and sweet florals throughout the session. The aftertaste lingers with a soft and fresh almost redwood-bark-like richness, without ever really giving way to what could be called woody. A very delightful tea, this is currently our house green oolong!

I confess that I order this one to see what it was. My bets were on the obvious Ali Shan or Shan Lin Xi, though I leaned towards Shan Lin Xi since they tend to have more of an alpine finish than their Ali counterparts do. Sipping this, however, made me lean a little more towards Alishan at first because of the honey and cream notes, but the evergreen character made me think otherwise. Then I put the picture on the page, and saw the Long Feng label…that makes so much more sense.

Anyway, I have greatly enjoyed it so far because it’s got some great complexity. Brenden’s notes does this one the most justice; it’s scent and taste have the evergreen feel to it like fresh air in the woods, but the aftertaste is far from woodsy and is instead sweet. Sometimes, the tea was smooth and creamy, sometimes it was pure sweet, and other times, it was sweet with a hint of spice. Either way, the tea was green, viscous, and just in part, vegetal.

It was the same price as the Li Shan, and I continue to prefer this one right now. I do think this is worth a try, and I actually think that the price for this one is reasonable given how outrageous a Long Feng can be in expense. With notes to come, I will note that I highly recommend it.
