    flavor notes floral, vegetal, crisp

    Wenshan, the range of mountains that surround Taipei in northern Taiwan produces a type of oolong that is twisted rather than rolled. It's a crafting style that hearkens to an earlier time in tea making, and actually predates the rolled oolongs for which Taiwan is known. Called Baozhongs or "Pouchongs",...

Peaking at 2200 meters above sea level, Lishan is the third...
