Considered one of the most prestigious high mountain oolongs in the world, Li Shan makes a one of a kind brew of a perfect balance of floral fragrance, honey and buttery like taste.
In the middle area of Taiwan island, a high altitude mountain, 1900 to 2100m/ 6889ft, called Li Shan produces many delicious high mountain tea, and Li Shan oolong tea is one of the most traditionally prestigious teas from this area. The high altitude area in the mountain is constantly surrounded by mist and fog with big difference of temperature between day and night and has an average short daylight all year round. Thanks to its environment, the tea in this area has rich pectin, vitamin and amino acid, which make teas mellow, smooth and sweet. The dry leaves are radiant emerald green whereas the liquor is honey like with light green.

Gai Wan or ceramic pot
Add 5gram/1 tbsp
85 C / 185 F

We strongly encourage experimenting with different quantities, steeping times and tea wares to find your most desired result. However, avoid over heated water, as it will over-extract the bitter compounds and astringency of the tea, whereas water that’s too cool might not fully extract the aroma and flavor.
