Description

Grown Without Pesticides

Spring 2016

This premium-quality oolong tea is grown in the Li Shan mountain range at an altitude of 2400 meters. The climate of these high mountains is ideal for growing fine oolong tea. The cool air and high humidity produce a tea with full, robust flavor and long-lasting aftertaste.

The brewed tea has an exquisite aroma and brews to an appealing amber liquor. The leaves can can be re-brewed many times while maintaining a full flavor.

Tea grown on Mount Li (Li Shan or Pear Mountain) is the most prized oolong tea in Taiwan. It is ideally suited for gong fu style brewing.

Heaven in a cup! This tea bursts with flavour. It is very fragrant with a floral taste. Unsurpassed and unrivalled!

One of the best tea here. Rather sweet, rich but delicate smell, taste lasts longer than other teas. For best results I start with 85C water for the first brew. Unlike some teas it needs colder water for the next brews (I do not heat the water teapot).

Smooth and nice just right fragrant with very reasonable price. I have been drinking this tea for few years now. Compared with the similar Li Shan Tea bought from other stores, this one from Tea from Taiwan is the best.

Consistently the best tasting tea I have ever tasted. A lovely golden colour with a well rounded taste - very smooth and it almost tatses 'golden'. Never a hint of harshness of bitterness. Well worth the price, since it is easily possible to use it for 3 brewings without any loss of flavour.

I've been a great fan of Hua Gang tea for years but the last shipment I received was somewhat different. The flavour and smell isn't as fruity as before. Also, I notice that the flavour comes out better at a higher temperature than normal. Normally I used a thermometer to reach exactly 83 degrees (inside the teapot), now it must be a bit higher. I'm not sure why this is, perhaps the tea is less fresh, as harvest was in spring?

Excellent tea. Sweet and flavorful. Unlike some teas it still has the same great smell and flavor after 4 uses
