2021 Winter Lishan High MountainFloating Leaves US
This Lishan high mountain oolong was harvested from a garden at about 1800 meters elevation. The high altitude brings out huge complexity, so this tea has some of the most brilliant notes of all our oolong teas. In Lishan, we are looking for a tea with floral and citrus notes and a rich buttery body.
Broth color is a brilliant jade. Notes of bright grapefruit and cotton candy are highlights in this complex aroma, with a rich buttery broth to round out the bottom. Notes are clear and exactingly articulated.
Full of flavor, this sweet little high mountain oolong is elegant in mood and ostentatious in performance. Full aftertaste, with a lingering warmth in the throat that is a hallmark of good quality.
Well executed, beauty of a tea.
