A sophisticated and delicate oolong, slowly grown in the cool mountain air.

Soft and floral with a rich, buttery aroma, Li Shan is a classic Taiwanese oolong that bursts with complex flavours. Infuse several times to experience the smooth and subtle notes of apricot, lavender and peach.

That's the only description I can think of - this tea is so pure you can literally sense the mountain air. Although expensive, worth every penny for a daily treat!

Li Shan

Very nice indeed

I was recommended Ali Shan but that was way too fragrant. I ordered several teas to try, this was the best of the lot. Fantastic tea and would highly recommend.

Li Shan

Lovely high quality tea

I can see why this oolong is slightly more expensive. It's high quality, delicate and very refreshing. I drink it all through the day as it's incredibly moreish.

Li Shan

I could drink this by the gallon

"Li Shans tend not to let me down, Canton Tea Company has never left me feeling disappointed. There was basically no way for this leaf to fail, and it doesn't. It's delicious and easy to drink, settling nicely into my stomach, so I could drink this by the gallon. If you're looking for a Li Shan, you almost certainly won't be disappointed by this one."

If you are tea lover, you would like this. Its amazing taste with the smooth, soft creamy fruit notes and floral hints.

"Once infused to a gorgeous light green/gold, the medium-bodied liquor takes on an even sweeter nose, reminiscent of sugarcane with floral backnotes. Delightful...."

I could seriously drink this tea all day long!

"Like Ali Shan, it is tightly rolled and twisted. But the flavor is delicately different than Ali Shan (which is grown at a lower elevation of 1200m+). While Ali Shan is a bit creamy, Li Shan is very buttery! It also has more floral notes to it, in addition to gentle undertones of fruit"

Li Shan

Canton Tea Co's Best Oolong

5

There are a few teas which when you first try them you are completely blown away. But a truly great tea will have a immediate impact, and leave you wanting more. The biggest compliment I can give to this tea is that after trying it the first time, I couldn't stop thinking about it and wanted to drink it once again. A wise tea connoisseur once told me that a truly great oolong has a tremendous Echo, that you can taste and sense the flavor long after your last sip. The li Shan truly possesses this quality. while the price may be offputting, it's flavor more then compensates for it. Honestly it is my favorite oolong made by canton tea company. Tremendously recommended.

An iconic oolong from a remote, high altitude garden in Taiwan. Just like the oolong from Ali Shan this tea comes from the Chin Shin cultivar, but grows under vastly different conditions. The climate on Li Shan is so cool and fresh, you might be forgiven for thinking you were in the Alps when looking out across the misty landscape. This is where the Chin Shin leaves thrive. The area is extremely fertile, and the leaves grow slowly in the cool air, taking all the time they need to develop their complex flavour and aroma. Chiban Garden itself is hidden away in a remote spot, at an altitude of 1800m and the only garden on the mountain to grow its tea organically. Unlike on Ali Shan, much of the surrounding land has been returned to the forest in recent years, leaving only around 100 gardens on the mountain. This makes a good Li Shan tea amongst the most highly prized in all of Taiwan.
