Fall Pear Mountain (Lishan) Oolong


A favorite of this company and for many of our customers, our freshly finished Fall Pear Mountain Oolong 2020 is ready to be shipped! 

A frost event this spring gave the tea plants on Lishan some damage but they have bounced back stronger than ever! This year's Fall pick is great. So great in fact, that we decided to buy a bunch of it and pass those cost savings onto you! Until mid of September we are currently offering 1kg of Fall Pear Mountain A for only $150, shipping included. Smaller sizes are of course on offer as well.

We are also offering all three processing days but A was the clear winner for us. These are all teas picked from the same garden by the same pickers and processed by the same tea master, just on different days. The days were:

A -- Picked August 8th, best all around 'fall pick' feel. Rich, smooth and fresh.

B -- Picked August 14th, full thick fruit notes but lacking the round completeness of A

C -- Picked August 10th, hits the taste points of more bitterness and astringency in it strength


You can see the options to sample the teas below and see if you agree with our choice!

This Pear Mountain Oolong has all the markers of a world class tea, except for the price point. Clear vegetal beginnings give way to the thick buttery mid mouth and finishes with a sweet stone fruit that lingers on the palate for hours. The classic butter mouthfeel of high mountain Taiwanese oolongs is enhanced by the beautiful flavors of this 2000m high terroir. This tea is the Fall pick so the flavors are richer, more buttery and stronger than the other seasons.
