2020 Spring Alishan High MountainFloating Leaves Tea
Alishan was the first high mountain region in Taiwan to begin growing tea on a large scale. We like to find Alishan oolongs with lots of beautiful floral notes. The tea garden that we work with is located about 1200 meters high in Zhangshu Hu.
The aroma of the wet leaves is bright and floral. The broth is fragrant, sweet and well balanced.
There is a buttery texture to the broth, and a sweetness that reminds us of milk candy. Aftertaste is long lasting, leaving a floral character behind in the mouth after swallowing.
We will update tasting notes as the tea develops. It arrived yesterday (5/23), so we are looking forward to how it will open as it acclimates to the new environment.
