Arguably one of the more aromatic of the Tieguanyin-style or low-oxidized Oolongs, Ben Shan “Source Mountain” is a classic flowery-flavor tea that cups to an aroma and fragrance and body that will satisfy! Made with a comparatively small-leaf varietal that is grown in the AnXi Region of Fujian Province (Minnan area), Ben Shan brings a number of distinctive attributes to the cup serving to make this spring Oolong a favorite for tea drinkers.

Lot Notes
This lot offers a seasonal distinctive aromatic & floral aroma. As well, the very attractive mix of light-green leaves indicates a light oxidizing and low firing. We noted the taste really opened after the first steep and held up with multiple steeps. Harvest date 2018.

Tea Facts
Fujian Province is historical source of Oolong tea. Grown in what is known as the Minn-nan area famous for Tieguanyin-style Oolong clones. Given this long history and broad propagation of varietals within the province and its perfect terroir, the taste of this lot is exceptional. Tea was harvested in the last week of April. It is the first pluck of Ben Shan in the season. Harvest date is 2018.

Tasting Notes
It cups to clear, yellow-green liquor that is silky and smooth. Aroma is fresh, stone fruit verging on peachy. Taste is soft and flowery, This tea goes well with food and is an excellent beverage served chilled. Ben Shan is an Oolong to have on hand for relaxing, at the office, and a wonderful beverage to enjoy while entertaining.
