From The Fragrant Cup

Grown on the slopes of Taiwan’s famous tea mountain LiShan (Pear Mountain), this tea is non-other than a perfect example of the much desired LiShan almost completely bought up each year by the most wealthy of the Chinese people. Because of China’s extreme and new found interest in LiShan, it is hard to find the “real deal”; tea is grown on other mountains in Taiwan, the leaves brought to LiShan and processed as if it was a LiShan tea. Bought directly from the farmer, be assured this LiShan is as good as the prosperous Chinese businessmen are drinking.

This is my oolong of the day, another tasty tea from The Fragrant Cup, and it’s a good counterpoint to my multiple steepings of Xingyang 98.

The texture is both crisp and buttery, very very buttery! Its a sweet, carmelized green bean kind of flavor, with a bright floral finish. Actually, it’s not green beans I’m tasting. I just realized it’s long beans. I grow them sometimes in the summer, and they are really long (I guess you assumed that), and although you can use them just like green beans, they have a savory and floral flavor, quite different from your usual green beans (which I also grow). The vines produce beautiful flowers, from which the beans grow, and they are very prolific. This tea reminds me of them.
