I am still testing this one out. It’s a very clean and easy going oolong so far, but I’ve not find the leaf ratio I like yet. I’ve overleafed it once. So far, creamy and floral with hyacinth in that department for sure . Full texture, light body and flavor. Water chestnut is the big note for me so far, maybe something resembling unflavored almond milk. Aroma is very soothing, but it doesn’t always show up in the flavor. It is easy to oversteep, and I’ve lost on some complexity before gong fu. It gets milkier as it cools off western. It’s not particularly sweet, yet very approachable with healthy L-theanine calming energy.
I’ve already plowed through half of my package as I’ve abused and experimented with it. Easy western with 2 minutes has worked best for me so far. I may need to up the temperature gong fu. We’ll see. I’m curious what Eastteaguy got from this one. I can say that I wish I got more of the Lishan on sale, but I’m happy to be drinking this one. The clean qualties impress me the most so far. It’s not extremely brothy or spinachy as some Gaoshans can be, and leans more floral watercress than vegetal. I’ll come back to it and likely will finish this off before the year ends.
