WOW! This tea was a total shock for me. As it is so different from any other Li Shan is have EVER had. An absolute superior green oolong raising the bar to ultra platinum level for tea drinkers. This sublimely sweet Lusciously ultimate green umami sugar pea nectar from this tea is fantastically one of the greatest drinking pleasures this tea drinker has EVER had . I purchased. 100gr. I should have bought 200. It steeps and steeps and steeps with just never ending flavor . THIS is truly a VERY SPECIAL TEA.
This tea is so different from the Pear mountain teas I've had before. The florally sweetness is replaced by a more vegatal taste. This snow pick is still floral but has a more green/vegetable note to it. The smell of the wet leaves really remind me of freshly cooked peas (: Really a delicate and lovely tea!
Very good, GET more
This tea has some great flavor but is considerably lighter than the other Pear Mountain teas. The Fall picks, particularly A, have been my favorites. I find I have to use about double (8g per 100g of water) of the Snow pick to pack the same punch as the Fall or Spring pick at 4g per 100g. I seem to get more infusions from Fall and Spring, 4 vs. Snow's 3, at this ratio.
This is quite possibly my favorite pick of Pear Mt. even though I love them all! This one starts out lighter than the others and reminded me very much of some recent Dayuling I had. Makes me think of the crisp fresh air of a winter's day filled with snow and ice cycles. It felt like I was drinking in fresh high mt. air with a hint of the beautiful floral that is in this oolong. As the steeps go on and on the floral comes out in full display among those snow covered leaves making for one of the most refreshing oolongs I've ever had!
