Lushan - High Mountain Taiwanese Green Oolong Tea

Sold out.

This is a new tea for me and I am very impressed. Like typical Taiwanese High Mountain Teas it is floral on the nose and delightful to steep and drink. For me it is a very accessible high mountain tea and most people who have never experienced this kind of tea will fall in love with it. I find it more gentle than the current Li Shan tea that I have in stock. Like the Li Shan it is a most refreshing tea that is smooth with floral overtones.

Harvested and hand picked at 1200 meters. Product of Taiwan: from Lushan Mountain.

Steeping instructions. Fully boil your water first, then allow it to cool for a few minutes. 95 C is a good temperature. If you're using only one teaspoon give it about 5 minutes. 

Traditionally Taiwanese teas are steeped in small tea pots with 7 to 9 grams of tea (approx 3 teaspoons). The tea is strong and yet has a natural tea sweetness. The steep this tea for 30 seconds. You can usually steep the pot 6 times.

My preference is to use a larger Korean Tea pot which holds 6 oz of water with 3 teaspoons of tea (about 9 grams of tea) I increase the steeping times with each subsequent steeping. After 4 or 5 infusions don't be afraid to push it...steep your tea for 20 to 30 minutes or even overnight. You can always add some hot water to warm the tea or dilute it if its too strong. With quality teas you can always make more! Remember you create your ideal tea taste by he amount of tea you use, the temperature of the water and the length of time you steep the tea. Don't be afraid to experiment. 

Please note I use the same pictures for all my High Mountain Green Oolong teas. The leaves look similar. I selected the best looking leaves.  Some leaves will be broken or ripped. This happens during processing and shipping.
