Zhong Shu Hu Oolong Tea
by Clay Conway
This tea is amazing! At first it was not one of my top favorites - but over time I have come to appreciate it much more! At first it just seems light & smooth, but over time it has taken on kind of a "steely" texture & wonderfully crisp finish. Also it blends well with other teas because it is so light.

tasty and clear color then come the toasted aromas of nuts and adds a subtle flavor of cane sugar that give just want to breathe deeply. Then what happens in the mouth and palate it is up to you. This tea leaves after a "buzz" in the taste buds makes you salivate long happiness.

[Tea Provided for Review] I loved this tea. It is quite an elusive tea to describe, while it has these wonderful floral elements, it also has some slight roasted ones as well. I was quite shocked to find out it was an AliShan tea, as I was drinking it I could have sworn I was drinking a LiShan From my blog: http://rah-tea.blogspot.com/2015/05/tea-from-taiwans-zhong-shu-hu-ooolong.html

I really love it, very nice rhythm and endurance, with a mix of cream at the beginning and and fruit and critics at the end.

The first thing that hit me soon as I open the bag is the wonderful aroma it smells floral and green and just beautiful, The taste was really nice too, it was nice and greenish and floral at first then creamy and almost buttery with some hints of fruit like apple or pear by the third infusion it developed slightly spicy notes almost like cinnamon that really played well with the fruity notes that were still there, This tea is superb to me.

This is a wonderfully delicate tea with hints of sweetness, fruity flavours and a pleasant aroma. I re-steeped it multiple times and enjoyed the depth in the flavour.

This tea is exceptional. Even with multiple steeps this tea is not bitter in any away and the tea develops a mild sweet flavor around the fourth and fifth steeps. I will be purchasing this tea again on my next order.

This is a perfectly balaned tea. It has a beautiful floral aroma and taste. Not too much. Just right! It finishes with a smooth buttery flavor. This is Oolong at its best!

Very good tea corresponds to its description on the site. Very interesting flavor and aroma persists for more than 10 infusions of Gong Fu method.

I think this is the perfect Oolong. It is perfectly balanced between astringency and fruit making it refined on the palate. It seems to just slip down the throat. It's remarkable that a tea can make your mouth feel clean and fresh. A must on everyone's try list.
A wonderfully refined, delicate tea with a fruity flavor reminiscent of dried apples. 6 infusions? I stopped at 9 and it wanted to give more!! A long sweet finish. This is what Taiwanese Oolong is all about.

Excellent tea. My business partner is snobby about Li Shan tea, and didn't believe we could import real Ali Shan from Taiwan. He had to brew it twice trying to prove it couldn't be as good as what he'd gotten from his farmer friend. But it was obviously top quality. Our secretary's brother is a tea importer. She couldn't believe the price.
