Lishan Premium High Mountain Oolong
"I would serve this Lishan to the most discriminating connoisseur" -- Tea Industry insider
Lishan Mountain is the source of this wonderful premium Gaoshancha. Lishan Mountain is called "Pear Mountian" in Chinese due to its history of cultivating fruit trees there. The fruit industry in Taiwan went overseas and farmers there started cultivating Oolong tea. It was a great idea!
What makes it premium? It's hand picked, hand made and grown at the highest elevations of Taiwanese Gaoshancha. These teas are grown around the 2,000M mark. It's colder at this elevation, so the leaves grow slowly taking in the daily environment of mist and sunshine. This produces a very smooth and brothey tea with higher viscosity. A premium drink that will last you months at the price of an average bottle of wine!
Harvest: Early Nov. 2017 "Winter Crop"
Brewing: BREW IN A SMALL TEAPOT
Larger sizes will be packed in 2 oz. sizes unless specifically requested otherwise. In other words, an 8 oz. order will come in 4 individually vacuum packed bags.
This Lishan new Winter 2017 crop is from the renowned Fushou area of Lishan. Great mouth feel and fragrance of the mountains. Recommended!
