2019 Winter 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.
Wet leaves have a big fruity and milk candy aroma. Broth is smooth and spreads nicely to the throat area. Classic high mountain buttery feeling. Taste is sweet and fruity with a bit of spinach undertones.
Update : The broth of this tea is soft and very well balanced, and it spreads quietly to coat the whole mouth. Texture wise this is the softest and most developed of all the high mountain oolongs we chose this season. In the blind tasting this was the favorite of both of us.
