Li Shan Oolong Tea is a kind of Taiwan tea coming from the top level Taiwan Gao Leng oolong tea. The environment and the altitudes with low temperature are shortly described as Gao Leng, “gāo lěng” in Chinese, meaning high and cold phase. Being grown in an elevated environment in cold weather, Li Shan tea trees produce very thick and soft tea leaves containing high concentration of pectin substances. This distinctive trait is not common for the low-altitude growing tea trees. Approximately the same tells us the ancient Chinese saying that human beings are shaped by the land around them. Thus, the environment defines all stages of tea making: growing of the tea trees, picking the fresh tea leaves, as well as processing of the tea. Gao Leng Tea is considered a limited output because of the peculiarity of the area climate of Lishan Mountain, making it a remarkable tea.
To dive into the tea ceremony you need to be careful in tasting its flavor and observing its appearance. Nonpareil Taiwan Li Shan Oolong Tea is made to shape it into round particles. When the tea is dried – it becomes glossy and dark green. The liquid will have golden yellow transparent color if you infuse it with 100C water. This tea has full and mellow flavor giving a fresh note and long lasting sweetness in the aftertaste. Steeping more than ten times, you will still be able to feel a smooth floral aroma and flavor. It remains present even if the tea is cooled in the cup. The natural fruity scent of Li Shan High-Mountain Oolong Tea is a great distinctive trait that can be met exceptionally in high grade teas. These trees are born in low temperatures in mountain climate conditions. Such unique areas are famous for producing teas with original natural fragrance. The difference between low and high grade teas is in the richness of taste, which is common for Taiwan Gao Leng teas.
