Ali Shan

 

A high mountain tea (gao shan cha), warm and mouth-filling. It features a complex taste profile, clearly floral and nonetheless deep and rich as dry ripe fruits. Its sweetness reminds of dark honey with a light woody, maybe resin, undertone.

Few leaves still attached to the soft stem are rolled together into green pearls. Steeped, the fragrant leaves release their scent to the water, turning into pale amber liquor.
