Description

This Taiwanese oolong is grown on the rocky cliffs of the Li Shan mountain range in the Nantou County of Taiwan. The tea is harvested at 6,600–7,800 feet above sea level. Due to the paucity of agricultural land at such high altitudes, the quantity of Li Shan oolong harvested every year is relatively limited, ensuring that it is always in great demand.

Like some people and most cats, the Li Shan oolong has markedly different personalities when dry and when wet. When you first open the tea pouch, you will be greeted with the aromatic notes of sugarcane. However, when you pour water over the tea leaves and watch them curl up, you will find your room filling up with a powerful orchid scent.
