Li Shan Oolong Tea
The Origin StoryOur Li Shan is a lightly oxidised and tightly rolled oolong, grown on one of the tallest mountains in Taiwan. On infusion, the tea has a pristine bright yellow colour and an amazingly floral and sweet aroma. Due to the altitude at which Li Shan oolong is grown, and the slow growth that this allows, the leaves of the tea are very large and often separated by large, long stems. These large leaves expand and fill the teapot after each infusion. This is the ultimate experience of a lightly oxidised and fired Taiwanese oolong.
