2020 Spring Lishan High MountainFloating Leaves Tea
Lishan, which translates to 'Pear Mountain' is one of Taiwan's most famous tea mountains. The misty peaks of this very high alpine region accent Taroko Gorge National Park on the East Coast of Taiwan. This tea garden is located about 1800 meters high on the mountain.
This is an elegant tea. Broth is both soft and also rich. Very much a buttery high mountain oolong. The fragrance is complex, very well balanced with lots of exciting high notes.
Fragrance is fruity and sweet off of the wet leaves. The broth already feels very balanced. It is still a little bit bound up, so we will update more tasting notes in the next few weeks. But overall, we feel really good about this tea.
