From Mountain Stream Teas

From one of the favorite regions of this tea company, this Pear Mountain Oolong has all the markers of a world class tea. Clear sweet vegetal beginnings to a smooth buttery mid mouth finishing up with a sweet fruit aftertaste, this tea is great for beginners to high quality tea and veterans alike. The classic butter mouthfeel of high mountain Taiwanese oolongs is enhanced by the beautiful flavors of this 2000m high terroir. It is the spring pick so the flavors are softer, lightly floral and smoother than the other seasons.

**This year’s Spring Pear Mountain was picked the first day of the production season and is much smoother and well balanced compared to last year’s frost damaged tea. It is a great example of what high mountain teas are all about!

Elevation: 2000m

Status: Tested Agrochemical Free, Grown Organically

Cultivar: QinXin

Oxidization: 20%

Season: May 18th, 2021

Method: Hand picked, processed on site, very small batch

Recommend Brewing Style:

Gong Fu Style: 3-5g per 100ml, ~100C water, 30, 45, 60 then add 5-10 seconds steeps in gaiwan. Lasts 5+ steeps.

Western Style: 3g per 100ml, ~100c water for 2-3 minutes. Lasts 3+ steeps.

**This tea takes a couple steeps to open up and lasts for many steeps. Hot longer steeps will reward you greatly!

Thank you Cameron!

This is a really smooth tea. There is an upfront light vegetal flavour, followed quickly by a subtle buttery note. The flavours are soft here, but still delightful. I have been enjoying two steeps of this and somehow made it through 25g without making a note!
