From Tea from Taiwan

Grown Without Pesticides

Spring 2019

Fu Shou Shan (福壽山) oolong tea is grown at an altitude of 2,500 meters (8,200 feet) in cool, moist conditions, producing the most highly-prized oolong tea in Taiwan.

Fu Shou Shan has a remarkably full rich taste, with all the characteristics of the finest Li Shan teas – highly fragrant, a smooth robust flavor, and a buttery mouth feel.

Fu Shou Shan oolong tea is packed with flavor, and will give many satisfying infusions from the same leaves.

Fu Shou Shan (Longevity Mountain) is part of Taiwan’s Lishan mountain range. Fu Shou Shan Farm is a government-owned farm and tourist center located on the south face of LiShan (Pear Mountain) in Taiwan’s Taichung county along the Central Cross-Island Highway.

Fu Shou Shan Farm is famous for its superb oolong tea, as well as other high quality agricultural products such as apples, pears, peaches and kiwi. Our Fu Shou Shan oolong tea is grown adjacent to the government farm.

Not quite sure how to rate this tea. It left me a little frustrated because no matter what I just couldn’t coax much flavor out of it through gongfu brewing. However today, I caught a fleeting glimpse of the tea’s character after hastily dumping a teaspoon or so of leaves in my tumbler with hot water.

The tea itself had a nice aroma of granny smith apples and daffodils. Wet leaf aroma was even more flowery with milk, butter, and a little tropical fruitiness. Gongfu brewing produced a light brew with a little sourness and notes of melon and cucumber. When allowed to steep longer, the tea is richer and develops into a bouquet of spring flowers with a sugarcane sweetness. I should have western steeped it instead of grandpa style though because eventually some bitterness crept in however underneath it, I could still taste the nectary sweetness.
