Ali Shan is an alpine green oolong tea from Taiwan. While relatively new, Ali Shan is one of Taiwan's most famous tea growing areas, producing beautiful high mountain oolong teas from its misty peaks. Warm sugar and deeply layered floral aromas, with a melting, creamy mouthfeel. Mellow and light bodied, this hand-crafted Ali Shan oolong is excellent for multiple infusions on a quiet afternoon. Steep at 195°F for 2-3 minutes

      I liked this oolong. It had a lot of nuanced flavor. I steeped it several times

      I agree with previous reviewers--this tea is definitely not bitter, but it was a bit earthy for my taste.

      Solid delicate tea with an almost honey-like taste. It was very good. Not bitter, per se, but a bit earthy.

      Soft honey and floral notes with a silky mouthfeel. A fantastic Oolong with a lot of depth and character. Highly recommended.

      Love this oolong tea!!! Very nice flavor with a hint of cream/vanilla. Perfect!

      It was ok, I wasn't nearly as impressed as I thought I would be though. It did have a bit of a creamy vanilla note which was nice. But I still prefer the jade oolong.

      Undoubtedly some of the best tea I've had. It has such a depth of flavor and although I don't think I'd be able to properly appreciate it every day, it makes for a nice treat.
