Grown at 1800 meters in Taiwan on Lishan (Pear Mountain). Harvested November 2019
The most lucious of the high mountain oolongs we’ve had from this harvest—very fruity as opposed to floral. It is also markedly milky, another unique performer in the Taiwanese tea troupe. If this tea were a play, the first act would be very milky, like a musk melon milk-candy. Subsequently, the fruitiness perhaps outpaces the milky flavor, but maintains its accompaniment—never fully a solo act. The way this tea coats the mouth makes me think of dew blanketing a field of grass.
