Li Shan Wulong, Competition Grade, Spring 2018
Taiwanese High Mountain Wulong at its finest, this tea is sourced directly from a farm on Li Shan (Pear Mountain). Grown at approximately 2,100 meters, this tea is a real gem. This tea has a very low level of oxidation; the leaves look very fresh, green, and vibrant. The body and flavor are rich, creamy, and delicious. The smell of this Li Shan is like honey. When brewed properly there is no bitterness or astringency.
In 2018, our Li Shan was given the "Samsung" award at the He Ping District Farmer's Tea Certification System. After placing in their competition, it took the Taiwanese government approximately 3 months to test, package, and send the tea back to us! Each package is 300 grams, is sealed and given a QR code so customers can verify its authenticity. There was only 25 Taiwanese kilos available, 5 of which we secured in the Spring of 2018. The Taiwanese government is very strict, and they test the tea to make sure it is unadulterated with other tea or any chemicals.
6 grams brews 7-10 times in a standard teapot or Gai Wan.
