You know I am a sucker for oxidized Oolongs but I love floral ones as well. This one is a floral type which comes from one of the highest mountain of Taïwan and is incredibly soft, light and pure. Yes, pure is the word which is coming first to me as I am sipping this lovely tea.
The dry leaf smells fresh herbs.
After 5 minutes into a boiling water the leaf is not totally deployed It retains some secrets until the 2nd infusion.
The colour of the liquor is from a very pale yellow.
This the taste of crystal Yes…I know but if crystal can be liquid and drinkable it would have the taste of this Li Shan, sure. Pure so pure, so refreshing and light, it is incredible.I adore it. None bitterness nor acidity.Lilac and touches of peach are the most evident notes to my palate.
1000 thanks Gabriele for this sample, it would almost make me change to jump in the low oxidized Oolong world. But I am on the dark side of the Oolong-y tales and I’ll remain even if this tea would probably have its place in my cupboard- and a very good place.
