Thumbs up!"The taste is wonderful! It is multilayered with a sweetness that hits the tip of the tongue followed by a rounded grainy taste. There is also an aftertaste that lingers for a few seconds on the roof of the mouth of flowers and nectarines. "

Aw... a day where I don't have anything on my platter other then drinking tea and editing a book. A good day. On days like this I tend to reach for an oolong because I can keep resteeping the leaves and have a different cup of tea each time.

Today my oolong is a Li Shan which is a high elevation oolong being grown at 6, 889 feet. It has a soft aroma of fresh cut hay, apples and the far away scent of flowers. The brewing suggestions were for gong-fu style however since I will be multitasking I went for the western style of brewing using 195 degree water and a steep time of 3 minutes.

When I first saw the liquor I did a double take thinking that I had forgotten to steep the leaves, it's almost clear with just the lightest tint of green. The aroma is like bread just slightly sweetened with fruit. Not able to distinguish the type of fruit but it is definitely there.

The taste is wonderful! It is multilayered with a sweetness that hits the tip of the tongue followed by a rounded grainy taste. There is also an aftertaste that lingers for a few seconds on the roof of the mouth of flowers and nectarines.

This is a delicious oolong that I would be glad to stock in my own personal stash. Definitely recommended!
