2021 Spring Alishan High MountainFloating Leaves US
Alishan was the first high mountain region in Taiwan to begin growing tea on a large scale. We like to find Alishan oolongs with lots of beautiful floral notes. The tea garden that we work with is located about 1200 meters high in Zhangshu Hu.
This Alishan has the characteristic sweet floral-creamy fragrance and a lightly buttery body that we are looking for. It's sweet and delightful, relatively light in body for high mountain tea, and does especially well for warm weather drinking. Easy going and pretty.
This is brand new Spring tea, so I'm looking forward to how it will deepen and develop complexity over time.
