    At 2600 meters above sea level, Fu Shou Shan is the second highest peak in the Lishan Range, exceeding Lishan (for which the mountain range is named) by almost 400 meters.

    Our Fu Shou Shan was hand-gathered from a tea garden that sits at nearly 2500 meters (8200 feet) above sea level. At that elevation, strong but short sun exposure in the morning produces intense flavor compounds, while cooler mist-shrouded afternoons allow the plant to store those compounds.

    The result is an incredibly flavorful and complex tea with an amazing degree of balance and concentration, with absolutely no astringency or bitterness. An initial brew delivers aromatic notes of sugarcane and cream. Subsequent brews reveal more complex floral and tropical notes that bring to mind ripened sweet pineapple and passion fruit. The finish is rich, unctuous and persistent.

    This is our go-to brewing method for Formosa oolongs, since it balances each element of this style’s character. For an even sweeter and richer taste, decrease you water temperature while extending brew time; for a brighter and more vegetal taste, increase your water temperature while slightly decreasing brew time.
