From Mountain Stream Teas

Fresh, sweet, smooth and a great expression of the Alishan terroir, our 2021 Spring Alishan Oolong is back in stock. From a smooth vegetal start, through its thick buttery mid mouth, to its lingering floral aftertaste, this one is about as ‘Alishan’ as it gets.

Grown on the same low intervention garden as our Alishan GABA Oolong, the similarities in quality are easy to see. A great tea for beginners and veterans alike, this tea is what high mountain oolongs are all about!

A wonderful surprise from Cameron — I’m so excited to try these new-to-me oolongs!

I have an exam at 6a tomorrow, so green oolong is where it’s at this evening. Something about a green oolong and it’s soothing qualities just lends itself to better concentration.

I really enjoyed the Ali Shan from CS, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to try this one too. I love the mellow flavour here, with the most subtle hints of bitterness intermingled with floral-ness.

1st steep: 1 minute
2nd steep: 2 minutes 30 seconds

Thanks Cameron :)

Exam at 6 am would make me cry. Maybe it means you have the rest of the day to enjoy, though. I hope so!

Cameron B.

So glad you’re enjoying them, and best of luck on your exam! ❤

Thanks! Sadly, I have a full day of work after my exam haha (and then a paper to start working on)! But I’ll soon have a holiday break from both school and work – yay. :)

Don’t talk about exams… pretty please.
Can’t wait for break from work, but then my studies start again.
