Fall Pear Mountain (Lishan) Oolong

A favorite of this company and for many of our customers, our freshly finished Fall Pear Mountain Oolong 2022 is ready to be shipped! 2022 has been a banner year for tea up on Pear Mountain and this year's fall pick is great. 

This year we are also offering two different teas from the same garden picked on different days. The Sweet Fall Pear Mountain was picked on the 19th of August from an area of the garden with more shade trees and tenderer leaves. It is lighter and has a hint of wild honey from green leaf hopper bites. The Rich Fall Pear Mountain was picked the next day, the 20th, from an area of the garden in full sun. Its flavor is richer, more buttery and has the classic full flavor of fall picked high mountain oolong.

These are all teas picked from the same garden by the same pickers and processed by the same great tea master, just on different days. Offered this year:

Sweet -- Picked August 19th, the first steeps of this tea are sweet and light with hints of wild honey. Subtle brew last for many steeps 

Rich -- Picked August 20th, full thick fruit, buttery mouthfeel, rich vegetal. Lingering aftertaste

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.

Refreshing, floral and buttery. Delightful tea

Refreshing, floral and buttery. Like buttered breadcrumb base. Clean, mellow and creamy.
Large tightly rolled leaves. Needs a few infusions to open up, but really delightful tea in later infusions.

Another Fine Tea

A wonderful autumn oolong. Aroma and taste goes along with website description. Great tea with no agrochemicals, can't beat it!

Neil Bernstein

A lovely smooth tea with very little astringency. Makes several brews without losing strength. Recommend!

I don't know what to call it except good

As a beginner, I am exploring all types of tea, and this one is one of those that made my eyes & taste bud light up from first taste. I am still acquiring the vocabulary to describe the taste of tea, so the best I can come up with for this is "good!" and "repurchase!" It has a light and sweet fragrance & taste, tastes fresh, and makes me happy with each sip.
