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 picked the first day of the production season and is much smoother and well balanced compared to last year's frost damaged tea. It is a great example of what high mountain teas are all about!

Remembers me of Taiwan

Every morning I´m looking forward to make my cup of tea. Pear Montain Oolong is always my favourite!

Outstanding

I am a tea snob and I love this oolong. I also bought the big leaf oolong and I’d say the big leaf has more of a floral aftertaste - which I like. Both are excellent teas. I’ll be back for more soon.

Delicious

A lot of ripe fruit notes but balanced with a creamy mouthfeel. The best of both oolong worlds.

An awesome high mountain Oolong for a fair price

I really loved the pear mountain from 2018, so I was curious to try out the 2019 spring pear mountain. You can tell that this tea is from a different farm than last year, but not in a bad way. The tea balls are a little bit more loosely pressed than the usual high mountain Oolongs you usually see. The picking is amazing. Big whole leaves and the classic "Oolong pick" with mostly 3-4 leaves. The upfront taste of this tea on the first steep has a stong vegetal taste with lots of sweetness. I like to brew the tea very hot for a very long time, then you really get those Deep, sweet notes that linger in your mouth. If you love Oolong, this is a must try.

Pear mountain Star Tea

This year's Pear Mountain oolong is fantastic. Buttery smooth floral and fruity. Has a wonderful sweet fragrance straight in the bag. Steeps well for me for at least 6 steeps still giving great tea. Highly recommend if you like high mountain tea and greener oolongs. For me this is one of my go to favorites
