Although my order took a little time to wend it's way to the UK, it arrived with samples of two other teas to try. I love Alishan Oolong and was very pleased to find an organic supply. My daughter spent last year in Taiwan and brought me some as a gift. She put me on to your website as I think she met you and wanted me to support your venture, which I will be happy to continue to do.
While I'll be the first to say this tea didn't blow me away, it is very good and has its merits. It doesn't have a strong flavor upfront at all, but the taste really comes through after a second or two and sticks with you. I'm noticing lots of pleasant astringency that's maintaining that flavor. The tea is otherwise lightly floral and delicate, a pleasant drink while I read on a lazy day.
If you like Alishan, this is a great example, good price too Plus, I like the lip service to sustainable and organic practices, even if that makes me a hipster.
This is a great example of what a high mt. Taiwanese oolong can be. The taste is refined, delicate, and absolutely delicious! But is this one any better than Pear Mt.? I suggest you try them both and make your own decision!
