About Li Shan Oolong:

Known as Pear Mountain, this lovely green Li Shan oolong comes to us from a garden in Wushe, in Nantou County, Taiwan. The grower’s favorite, this is a high-elevation oolong, grown at 1600-1700 m, from the Jing shing cultivar. The leaves are hand-plucked, tightly rolled, lightly oxidized, and lightly roasted. The leaf opens quickly during infusion, releasing a warm aroma and fresh flavors.

Ingredients: Oolong Tea Leaves.

Flavor Profile:
