2019 Spring Alishan High MountainFloating Leaves Tea
Alishan was the first alpine 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.
Dry leaves smell sweet and buttery, with buttery coming to the forefront when the leaves are wet. The first infusion makes the tea feel delicate and dainty, but give it time. This is a late bloomer, with lots of dynamic change.
The broth becomes thick, buttery and smooth in subsequent infusions. Floral notes show up in the scent and the aftertaste. The aftertaste is nicely balanced, with an invigorating texture and floral bouquet.
This tea is charming; floral and buttery, with a balanced broth that develops complexity over the course of infusions.
