Harvest Season: November 2017
The winter harvest of Gao Shan Cha is prized for its complex fragrances, delicate body, and lovely pale green infusion color.
We selected this tea for its dewy sweetness and hint of gentle baking which draws out a pleasant note of macadamia nut milk in the finish
This winter micro-lot from Ali Shan has a wondrous aromatic bouquet distinguished by notes of sweet tropical cherimoya, lilac blossoms, and a hint of macadamia nut milk.

For the best infusions, we recommend brewing this tea in a Gaiwan
We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.
