|"Possesses a vibrant and happy terroir."|
Lishan is part of the Jade mountain range,(Yushan in Chinese,) which contains the highest mountains in Taiwan. Permits to climb these mountains are in high demand. Yushan has a National Park that is a huge, multi-layered, multi-climate, playground for people and wildlife alike.
With all this wonder and adventure surrounding it, Lishan Tian Tu Oolong Tea can't help but be full of life and flavor.
It started out unassuming enough. Its tightly wound green balls just lie there in the package. When I added boiling water to them, though, they swelled up and sent forth the headiest, most buttery aroma that any tea could be capable of.
Drinking the light, green-brown liquid was a such a treat, I implored everyone I know to "taste this tea!" It was creamy and buttery with tiny bouquets of wildflowers and exotic grasses.
Unfortunately, these leaves were sold out when I wrote this. But many more, happy little tea plants are playing on the slopes of Pear Mountain, getting fat and juicy for next year's harvest. When it comes in, I urge you to but as much as you can afford. I rate it a 10.
