Ali Shan is a beautiful green oolong tea grown in the mountains of Taiwan, where high altitude slows plant growth, concentrating in its leaves great complexity and flavor. Its aroma is buttery and intoxicating floral, reminiscent of lilacs, the mark of an excellent green oolong. The golden-green liquor yields a layered, almost creamy cup, with notes of sweet honeysuckle and a whisper of dry finish. Our Formosa Ali Shan may be steeped many times. Steep at 195°F for 4 minutes

      This tea is definitely high quality and complex, but I found it slightly too earthy for my taste.
