Golden Tea Leaf was kind enough to offer me a sample at my request. Thank you so much!
They did warn me that this needed some Cha Dao, and I brewed this as suggested. It was not as sweet as I expected and was heavier in texture than in flavor. Like most of the oolong that I had from the company, the texture is incredibly thick and silky. It was also creamily green like freshly rinsed spinach. The vivid florals described on the page were present, but subtle. Pine and hyacinth were more dominant for me than jasmine, though I caught hints of it with the very small splash of citrus. The florals were more dominant later on, and I got about six cups for each session.
I can see why Pascal said that this tea was not for everyone and more for a connoisseur. The flavors were very subtle and took some careful discrimination to pick out. I also had to really get my nose close for the wonderfully floral smell. I preferred the other selections picked for me because the flavors of this tea were too subtle for me while the texture was a little bit too thick. I am glad to have enjoyed this Lishan anyway.
