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, it very rarely leaves the island of Taiwan! The rich floral vegetal sweetness of the snow picked teas is unmistakable and this one has it in full force. Like cabbage flowers in a vegetable broth, once you have had it once it is hard to forget the unique taste of this season!
