Lishan tea is a High-Mountain Oolong Tea and one of the famous Taiwanese oolong teas growing at an altitude of about 2000 – 2500 meters. Lishan is the name of the place, which means “Pear Mountains”.
For many years, pear gardens used to be the foundation of the economic system in this area. Now this role is played by tea. Unique weather and climate, fertile rich black soil, cold environment make tea leaves soft, with high content of catechin and pectin substances, and give them really incredible taste.
Lishan tea has a floral aroma with a smooth taste and a fresh fragrance.
This kind of tea should try every who like Oolong.
