Special Acquisition Winter 2012 Lishan Wulong
Satisfying while still retaining delicacy, this is a fine winter tea. It has a thick texture with a hint of dryness high on the palate, and a basically sweet finish. Of course, as with the other teas from very high elevations, it will brew around 10 infusions. This batch has a clear progression from first to last brew, but maintains its smoothness throughout.

Special Acquisition Traditional Wulong
This interesting tea, a heavily oxidized and baked “traditional” wulong is made in the style of 50 years ago red in the cup, a touch of honey sweetness, and a clear dry finish. It’s very refined, a little taste of tea history. 150g units available on a special order basis. Currently two 50g packages are in stock.

Special Acquisition Spring 2013 Lishan Wulong
This batch is less dry than the winter 2012 batch, but is also not overtly sweet like the 2011 Lishan teas. The balance is excellent, and the flavor expansive in the middle, supported by more subtle flavors in the initial and late tastes.

Special Acquisition Spring 2012 Lishan Wulong
This batch is long on refinement, with a bright flavor up front and mild dryness at the end. The high-elevation creamy texture is also apparent. In general this tea is dIfferent from the other currently available Lishan teas, which are more delicate and sweet.

Special Acquisition Winter 2011 Lishan Wulong
With steady flavor through ten infusions, this early winter tea has grassy notes remarkably close to a green tea in the first two or three pots. The flavor then becomes more expansive with a sweet finish. Packaged in a vacuum-sealed bag inside a fancy paper canister.

Special Acquisition Spring 2011 Lishan Wulong thumbnail
 
Special Acquisition Spring 2011 Lishan Wulong
Grown at high elevation (1700-2500 meters) on Taiwan's Lishan mountain range, a region famous for producing excellent fruit as well as tea. This batch has a fine, thick mouth feel and sweet, non-astringent finish. As with previous teas from this region, these qualities are very consistent through many infusions.

Special Acquisition Spring 2011 Fushoushan Wulong thumbnail
 
Special Acquisition Spring 2011 Fushoushan Wulong
Fushou mountain is located between Lishan and Dayuling, and has a maximum elevation approaching 2500 meters. The tea farms here are government-owned, but in recent years the employees have been moved from a salary to commission system, where they profit directly from the sale of the tea. This is my best Wulong of the season, with all the elements of a classic "high mountain" tea with a special citrus quality in the flavor. Very limited availability.
