Pear Mountain(Lishan) Oolong

Snow Pick

 

This rarest of teas is one that is usually 'farmers only'. Picked just as the first frosts put the tea trees to sleep at the start of winter, the crisp freshness of this tea is world class. Due to the small quantity and difficulty of making this tea, so is the price however! If this is your first time sampling our high mountain oolongs it might be best to start with a cheaper pick like fall or spring. If you are already a connoisseur of the tea of the high mountains of Taiwan, this tea is a real treat! As it is oxidized in much cooler conditions than other teas it will need a few more steeps than other teas with very hot water to get going, but once it does you will not be disappointed!

Possibly my favorite Pear Mt.!

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!

The most unique of the bunch

I have and love all three other seasons of Pear Mountain, and this one is the most different
The first brew is delicate ans subtle, and the more standard High Mountain tastes join in in the second brew.
Really nice tea.

if you're able definitely try the 4-seasons sample pack,
it's a win-win as they're all good and different!
