Pear Mountain
Try this tea first
Product code: CSTW-62

This high mountain Wulong tea was harvested from Mr. Chang Fu Chin’s garden, located on the slopes of the ‘Pear Mountain' (Li Shan) at over 2000 meters on the island of Taiwan.

Its beautiful leaves, exploding with aromatic oils, deliver a supple and vegetal liquor, enhanced by a velvety texture and charming flowery aromas reminding us of sweetgrass.

Its sweet and lingering finish aptly completes the fascinating flavour profile of this grand cru!
