Wow

Wow, this tea is so smooth and lightweight but almost tastes like the candy version of tea. Absolutely delicious. I will buy this again and again.

My favorite oolong

I have been drinking ali shan oolong for close to two years now, from multiple tea sources. The ali shan from Steven Smith is my favorite and the price is a fair deal. I don't know if I can say enough good things about ali shan except that it has inspired me to track down a camellia sinensis to start growing and creating my own tea. The sweet, floral flavor with a spicy note is spot on. I never want to be without this tea! Thank you, Steven Smith, for offering it a nice price and wonderful quality!

New teas

The order was such that the prolongs have not been opened yet. I'm having too much fun with British brunch , Kandy, and Ceylon Dimbula. The Oolongs are still on my to do list, since they are to me the very special leaves that need an open pore tea pot, to be fully appreciated. I. E. to share with friends and family. Due to covid S- 19 they are not able to Visit, so it may be a bit before I can safely sample more of your excellent tea. Thank you for your interest. Francis.

Great tea!

This is my favorite tea right now. So delicious and flavorful. I steep it twice and it’s great the second time as well!

Excellent Oolong

Love this oolong. Notes of sweet cream. Upon inspection of the steeped leaves, you’ll find most are 3-leaf stems. This is an oolong that loves lots of room expand so be sure and use a vessel that is accommodating. Be sure to savor the aroma of the steeped leaves. Not the most expensive oolong but it certainly does taste expensive. Highly recommended!

Ali Shan

Taiwanese Oolong Tea

This full leaf tea is produced in the Ali Shan mountains of Taiwan from the Si Ji Chun (Four Seasons Spring) tea cultivar. This lightly oxidized oolong is prized for its full mouth feel, soft tropical, floral and stone fruit notes and a candied finish. This tea can be steeped several times and is enjoyed with both a traditional brew process or in a gaiwan service.

Ali Shan

Located in eastern Chiayi County in central Taiwan, the Ali Shan (Mountain) Range is famous for its scenic beauty and high elevation oolong teas. This elevation helps to give the tea its rich and floral flavor. The two growing seasons, Spring and Winter, each produce a different flavor profile in the tea.
