From Zhao Zhou

The premium version of our Li Shan (梨山, Pear mountain) high-mountain green oolong from the winter harvest, coming from 2000 meters above sea level. Worth comparing with the other Li Shan teas, because of the different weather, and the different harvest periods the tastes and feelings are really varied also.

A high-mountain (1800-2000 meters) green oolong from one of Taiwan’s best-known tea growing areas. The cooler air of the mountain is beneficial for tea plantations and pear growing, hence its name Li Shan (梨山), which is Pear Mountain. Due to the high mountain climate, the leaves remain smaller, softer, and tea is more intense in tastes and effects also.

Tasting notes:
Steamed gaiwan: the light smell of lime, coconut shell
Tastes, and feelings: We find slightly fruity tastes with spinach and cream in the first steepings. Later the amazing flowery character of the Green Heart variety (Qing Xin, 青心) comes with some coconut and caramel. We imagine it’s like a lily of the valley meadow. Our attention turns inside, our minds clear, our senses open. Really worth giving time and concentration to this tea when taste.

Preparing Instructions:

Quantity: 5-6 grams per 150 ml.
Water temperature: 85-95ºC. From fresh, spring water or filtered water.

Finally giving it a rating. One of the easiest going Lishans I have, and creamiest. It actually works as tumbler fuel, giving some coconut water vibes amidst its soothing healthy green taste. I’m excited for Leafhopper to try this one out.

I’m excited to try it out now, too! :) I’m drinking some of the Wang Dayuling in my 150 ml Hongni teapot and it’s sweet orchid nectar. However, maybe that’s because the pour is longer so the steeps are more intense. I’m trying to open some of my own vacuum-packed oolongs to put in the swap boxes before trying yours, but it’s hard!

Lol no worries!

Also, you have unopened green oolong?! Jealy. Granted, I always plow through mine quickly.

I had a hard time giving up the Dayuling, but since I had others I needed to get through, you’d be better off with it. It’s really good, though it changes a lot from session to session.

I try to keep only one or two green oolongs open at a time to maintain freshness, though I sometimes cheat if they’re not in vacuum-sealed bags. (Those zip pouches are already “open” when they arrive, right?) I actually still have some unopened oolongs from Wang and a couple from Ethan Kurland, plus a few from 2018-2020 that I need to finish.

I imagine it was hard to part with that Dayuling. Thank you! It’s so good that I might cave and pick up a 50 g bag, though I may change my mind once I’ve tried the Fushoushan. All the teas I’ve had so far from Wang have been excellent.

Leafhopper

I tried the Li Shan today. It’s indeed floral coconut custard with a green edge, and is very enjoyable.

Must! Not! Buy! More! Green! Oolong!
