Our Review
Li Shan is one of the most recent High Mountain (Gao Shan) tea growing areas. It is located in the middle of Taiwan's central mountain region. The tea is rolled into balls using special machines. In the old days, they used the feet of strong teamen to bend the leaf. This is considered one of the best oolongs in the world.
Dry Leaves Green leaves tightly rolled into little pieces.
Liquor A very light clear green-yellow.
Aroma Sweet, with an intense mixture of flowers, pears, and lemons.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body A medium bodied oolong. This tea may be brewed multiple times.
Flavors Creamy, like lemon and pear with underlying vegetal notes.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 205° F

Li Shan

This is one of Taiwan’s highest mountain teas. The tea plants must battle cold (sometimes even snow) and frequent mists. This makes a haunting brew with echoes of honey and cream.

Very nice tea indeed!
Average Review:

This tea is very nice! It is smooth and buttery at first, then you get hints of floral and citrus. One I keep stocked in the house.

Perfection!
Average Review:

I love this tea. It has layer after layer of sweet flavors, alternating citrus and floral, with just a hint of that nice buttered-and-lightly-toasted-bread oolong note to finish it off before the final taste of lime kicks in...Very much my special occasion oolong!
