Li Shan

Among the more vivacious of oolong experiences, this Li Shan wafts in tropical fruit and spices warmed by the sun. With its provenance on Taiwan’s most treasured tea-bearing mountains, the clean and mineral tartness suggests the higher elevations of its origin. Named pear mountain, this tea owes its particularity to the rich soil left behind by the many pear orchards that once lined these slopes. Lightly oxidized and tightly curled, its slow unfurling exposes a potent yellow nectar, with each brew a lively disco of flavors—tangerine and papaya swathes a milky body and cinnamon warmth, giving it the carefree manner and full atmosphere of an eternal summer.
