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.
The new batch of Lishan just arrived today (9/19), and we feel it will continue to integrate as the jet-lag wears off. We will DO OUR BEST to update the tasting notes as the tea integrates ;)
Wet leaves have a rich, buttery aroma with attractive fruit notes. The broth is soft, sweet, and slippery. Flavor is well balanced, and the most prominent note is of young fruit. Aftertaste leaves a floral aroma behind in the mouth, and a lingering sense of salivation reminds the palate that the tea was just there.
Overall a very solid Lishan with buttery texture and elegant bright notes.
