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!
