Spring Pear Mountain(Lishan) Oolong


From one of the favorite regions of this tea company, this Pear Mountain Oolong has all the markers of a world class tea. Clear sweet vegetal beginnings to a smooth buttery mid mouth finishing up with a sweet fruit aftertaste, this tea is great for beginners to high quality tea and veterans alike. The classic butter mouthfeel of high mountain Taiwanese oolongs is enhanced by the beautiful flavors of this 2000m high terroir. It is the spring pick so the flavors are softer, lightly floral and smoother than the other seasons. 

**This year's Spring Pear Mountain was hit by frost early in the growing season and that has impacted the overall taste of this year's batch. The leaves were thickened up a bit and so the overall 'feel' of this year's tea isn't as smooth as last year's. It is still fresh, thick and fruity but there are a few more edges on this year's tea than last year's. It is still worth getting, but try it first before you buy a larger quantity to see if you enjoy it as much as the usual spring teas from this area.
