Li Shan Medium Roast Tea is a high-mountain oolong tea grown in the Li Shan area of Taiwan and roasted to a medium level. The tea plants are grown at elevations ranging from 1,200 to 2,600 meters above sea level, where they benefit from clean air, abundant rainfall, and fertile soil.
The tea leaves of Li Shan Medium Roast Tea undergo a precise process of withering, rolling, and oxidation before they are roasted. The medium roasting process enhances the tea’s natural sweetness while adding a hint of nuttiness and caramel flavor, resulting in a balanced and complex taste profile.
The medium roast also gives the tea a deeper, darker color and a fuller-bodied mouthfeel. The aroma is often described as a combination of floral and roasted notes.
Li Shan Medium Roast Tea is highly prized among tea connoisseurs for its exquisite taste and aroma, as well as its rarity and limited production. It is considered a luxury tea and is often served on special occasions or as a gift to tea enthusiasts. The medium roast brings out a different flavor profile than the traditional light roast of Li Shan tea, making it a unique and sought-after variety.
