2018 Winter Hehuan Shan High MountainFloating Leaves Tea
This oolong was harvested from a tea garden around 1800 meters high on Hehuan Shan, near Lishan. The name He Huan means 'happy together' in Chinese. Although this is a lesser known mountain, often marketed as Lishan tea in Taiwan, it has been consistently yummy for the last few seasons.
The broth is exceptionally soft and smooth, and after swallowing floral and citrus high notes linger as the tea slowly stimulates the mouth to salivation. It is gentle, clear and balanced. To try and capture this tea in one word, I would choose "elegant".
